Where the Rubber Meets the Road: Community-Inclusive Interventions to Achieve Equity in Cancer Care

Samuel Cykert, MD and Christina Yongue, MPH, MCHES will describe long-lasting racial disparities in breast and lung cancer care, and some of the root causes for these inequities. Participants will learn how a community-academic-medical partnership addressed these disparities by designing system-change interventions based on antiracism principles. Participants will also learn how disparities were eliminated through institutional changes, partnership development, and what aspects can be translated in other medical settings.

Webinar Objectives:

  • Recognize that cancer treatment disparities negatively impact outcomes for Black breast and lung cancer patients.
  • Recognize that community partnerships in research and quality improvement can help identify barriers and solutions that enhance care and research participation for all.
  • Identify system level interventions derived from community-academic partnership that reduce cancer treatment disparities and improve outcomes for all
