Highlights from ASCO 2021
The 2021 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting took place last week. ASCO brings together the cancer community to explore the latest advancements in research, treatment and patient care.
The theme of this year's meeting was “Equity: Every Patient. Every Day. Everywhere.” We were particularly gratified to see this topic because as a patient-focused organization, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) stands for all cancer patients, working to ensure they have access to quality affordable care.
