Healthcare Rights are Human Rights: A Discussion on Cancer Health Equity
2021/09/24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join the Zhu Family Center for a virtual discussion on how political, social, health and educational systems are intertwined in ways that drive the many disparities we see in cancer and other health domains.
