President's Cancer Panel

Cancer Screening during COVID-19


The President’s Cancer Panel is conducting a series of virtual meetings, Improving Resilience and Equity in Cancer Screening: Lessons from COVID-19 and Beyond.

During these meetings, Panel members and invited stakeholders will discuss cancer screening across four cancer types—cervical, breast, lung and colorectal cancers. The goal is to explore specific issues deemed critical to the National Cancer Program and develop strategies to accelerate improvements in cancer screening. Viewers will be able to watch and listen as experts engage in a moderated discussion that will help inform the Panel’s key recommendations to the President. There will be opportunities for public comment and questions and answers at various points during each meeting. The meetings are free and open to the public.
