On Wednesday, September 16, at 12:00 p.m. ET, the AACR will release its inaugural Cancer Disparities Progress Report to raise awareness of the enormous toll that cancer exacts on racial and ethnic minorities and other underserved populations. The report also highlights areas of progress in reducing cancer health disparities and specific recommendations for achieving health equity, a basic human right for all people, regardless of their race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, or the communities in which they live.

The report will be presented to Congress in a virtual briefing that is open to the public. A video of the briefing will be rebroadcast on the AACR Facebook page at 3:30 p.m. ET Wednesday, September 16.
