The Atlantic will host their annual #PeopleVCancer forum ("Rethinking Everything We Know") on Nov. 12 in New York City, featuring journalists, patient advocates, physicians and scientists.

Event Description

Personalized medicine. Modernized clinical trials. Next generation immunotherapy.

For decades, cancer treatment came down to three things: surgery, radiation, chemotherapy. But medical breakthroughs are revolutionizing the way doctors, patients and their families think about a cancer diagnosis – and complicating their decision-making.

What does it mean to live with cancer today? And how do we lead with empathy and compassion to ensure that the treatment is right for the patient? At People v. Cancer, The Atlantic will illuminate stories from the frontlines of the cancer community, from the latest oncology breakthroughs to the power of the human experience.
