During his keynote lecture, Dr. Robert A. Winn, director of VCU Massey Cancer Center, discussed the history of health disparity research going back more than 100 years, and the historical context of a pandemic and social unrest occurring at the same time. Research, knowledge and solutions have existed for a long time, but what’s still lacking is a plan for implementation. The COVID-19 pandemic provides an opportunity to do things differently, to be different, and to make bigger impacts in at-risk communities.

Listen to this important, engaging lecture and discussion with Dr. Winn and chair Manisha Palta, MD, from Duke Cancer Center.
