KRON-4 anchor Ysabel Durón, a cancer survivor and founder of Latinas Contra Cancer, is putting on the first National Latino Cancer Summit in San Francisco this Thursday and Friday, July 31st and August 1st.
Scientists and health care workers from all over the country will converge to discuss the most recent medical findings linking cancer, Latinos, the environment and genetics.
Ysabel has been working on making this summit a reality for 2 years. Why?
“Latinos will be left behind in life-saving cancer care if they’re not part of cutting edge medicine, including clinical trials. Awareness and collaboration are key in moving the community forward,” she says.
