The ACS CAN Nebraska Cancer Research Forum is a premiere event that brings together leaders from the business, education, medical, government and ..
research communities to advance the work of ACS CAN. The event not only unites those in Nebraska who are fighting to end cancer, it serves to support ACS CAN and its work. This event will examine the importance of cancer clinical trials and the key barriers preventing patient participation, including a focus on equality, which currently result in approximately 20% of cancer clinical trials never beginning due to lack of enrollment. • How do everyday issues, such as location, transportation, childcare, affect access for patients to potential new treatments through clinical trials?.
