National Latino Cancer Summit, San Francisco 2016

The 5th Biennial National Latino Cancer Summit takes on the complexity of Precision Medicine, what it is, why should we care, and will it really serve the Latino community. Listen to experts excited about the possibilities of new answers to the cancer conundrum, the potential for targeted treatments - driven by big data based on increasing genomic knowledge, new drugs and clinical trials. This Summit was convened to create partnerships engaging hospitals, labs, universities and community leaders to frame new models of inclusion and care from the grassroots to the academic towers!
