Gregory Foundation For Cancer Research To Host Biden Cancer Summit

The Gregory Foundation for Cancer Research will host a Biden Cancer Community Summit on Sept. 21 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Northwell Health’s corporate headquarters at 2000 Marcus Ave., in New Hyde Park.

This summit will address a patient’s cancer journey beyond the disease, including topics such as patient data, disparities in cancer and treatment, managing difficult conversations, preventing cancer, understanding oncology research, the development pipeline and how to promote innovation now and in the future. The summit will bring together all stakeholders in cancer, including clinicians, scientists, researchers, pharmaceutical industry, patients and caregivers.

The Gregory Foundation’s partnership with Northwell Health aims to accelerate progress and collaboration in cancer care, treatment, prevention, diagnosis and survivorship. The goal is to double the rate of progress in cancer by joining hands with Biden Cancer Initiative for this global effort.

Northwell is the only site on Long Island hosting a Biden Cancer Community Summit. Through this summit, the Gregory Foundation and Northwell hope to deliver what patients deserve: a cancer research and care system that puts saving and extending lives above all else.

While the summit is free, seating is limited so those interested in attending should register by contacting Emily Morrissette by Sept. 14 at 516-321-6272 or
