About this Webinar:
This webinar will focus on a frequently overlooked, but often devastating, toxicity of cancer treatment: financial toxicity. It will highlight how the high cost of therapy can negatively affect the access to quality cancer care and ultimately lead to an erosion of the type of care patients may be able to receive.
