On Tuesday, Oct. 17, DCI patient navigator and navigation manager Valarie Worthy, MSN, RN, and Deputy Director of DCI Steven Patierno, PhD, will participate in the first of a series of in-person meetings of the President’s Cancer Panel in New Orleans on "Opportunities for Enhancing Patient Navigation."

The topic on that date is "Reducing Cancer Care Inequities: Leveraging Technology to Enhance Patient Navigation."

The President’s Cancer Panel is a Federal Advisory Committee that monitors the activities of the National Cancer Program and reports to the President of the United States on barriers to progress in reducing the burden of cancer. The panel (Elizabeth Jaffee, Mitchel Berger, and Carol Brown) is convening key experts to discuss gaps and opportunities related to the use of technology to support cancer patient navigation. Information gathered during this meeting series will guide the development of the Panel’s report to the President.

This all-day meeting — to be held from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM — is open to the public and will be broadcast live. REGISTER
