The Biden Cancer Initiative mission is to develop and drive implementation of solutions to accelerate progress in cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis, research, and care, and to reduce disparities in cancer outcomes.
Biden Cancer Initiative Working Groups, chaired by Advisory Committee members, identify promising solutions to priority issues and are tasked with developing actionable recommendations focused on how specifically the Initiative can play a role in advancing progress.
