Our Close The Gap online conference held June 23, 2022 sought to raise awareness about the huge disparities that exist for minorities when it comes to cancer care.

We partnered with NYU Langone and the Perlmutter Cancer Center, along with top doctors, survivors, and cancer community executives to enlighten, challenge, and educate. As we close the gap together, we will lift each other up.
