Arif Kamal, MD, MBA, MHS, chief patient officer at the American Cancer Society, spoke with Healio about two national roundtables the society will launch to advance the fight against breast and cervical cancer.

“We see these two cancers as very important in bringing attention to national leadership and thinking,” Kamal told Healio.

The formation of these roundtables follows President Biden’s relaunch of the Cancer Moonshot, intended to reduce the cancer death rate in the United States by at least 50% over the next 25 years.

“[The roundtables will] provide a centralized national convening mechanism to bring all stakeholders together to talk about these important cancers and chart together a future that reduces health disparities and increases outcomes for these important cancer populations,” said Kamal.

In this video, Kamal explains how the roundtables will work, the timeline participants will follow, and what the American Cancer Society ultimately hopes to accomplish through the process.
