A public webinar will be held on Tuesday, September 10, 2013 from 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT for the release of the IOM report, Delivering High-Quality Cancer Care: Charting a New Course for a System in Crisis. In the United States, approximately 14 million people have had cancer and more than 1.6 million new cases are diagnosed each year. By 2022, it is projected that there will be 18 million cancer survivors and, by 2030, cancer incidence is expected to rise to 2.3 million. The new report examines opportunities for and challenges to delivering high-quality cancer care and provides recommendations for its improvement. It also updates the 1999 IOM report Ensuring Quality Cancer Care.

Panelists include:

Patricia A. Ganz (Chair), UCLA Schools of Medicine and Public Health
