Novartis Honors World Cancer Day With Video Series

Originally published on novartis.com. Novartis is a DiversityInc Hall of Fame company. 

We’re honoring World Cancer Day with a new series called “Let’s Talk About the C Word: From Cancer to Cures” to address challenging conversations on cancer.

The series explores cancer, cures and everything in between through the perspectives of our own President of Oncology, Dr. Susanne Schaffert, as well as industry experts Dr. Paul Farmer, Dr. Michel Coleman, and cancer campaigner, Deborah James.

Each month, we’ll release new content focused on important topics like access, survivorship and precision medicine. Stay tuned for more!
