COVID-19 and Oncology Care


Tune into another episode in the Avalere Health Essential Voice podcast series focused on disease education. In this segment, experts from Community Oncology Alliance (COA) and Texas Oncology join us to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on oncology care from a provider and patient perspective.
“Because the politics and policy have been so focused on COVID-19, it’s important for policymakers to realize there's an underlying crisis in cancer care after we've done so well for so many years. We have a real problem.” Ted Okon
