Closing Cancer Care Gaps: City of Hope Leads the Charge Towards Health Equality

Race, age, gender, socioeconomic position, and geography might cause cancer care disparities. Recent studies show that rural and low-income cancer patients have worse survival rates. Despite recommended screening tests, persons of color, particularly Black people, have higher cancer incidence rates and fewer early-stage diagnoses.

Health equality programs at City of Hope aim to reduce these gaps. Famous genomics specialist Dr. John D. Carpten stresses the need to find and reduce variables that increase cancer incidence and death in underprivileged regions. Clinical trials are being used to provide access to vital cancer research and treatment to ensure equitable care for all patients, regardless of ethnicity, color, gender, poverty, or region.

City of Hope’s objective to reduce cancer inequalities relies on precision medicine and genetic testing. City of Hope offers free genetic testing to all patients to tailor therapy and enhance results for various populations. Dr. Veronica C. Jones and Dr. Sarah Shuck also lead research to explore demographic differences in breast and prostate cancer outcomes.
