In response to the upheaval of the health care system due to COVID-19 (novel coronavirus), the Community Oncology Alliance Patient Advocacy Network (CPAN) hosted the first ever Community Oncology Advocacy Summit: Cancer Care in a COVID-19 World on Wednesday. More than 800 attendees, which included patients, survivors, caregivers, advocates, professionals, and others, joined for a full day of education from national experts on the best ways to advocate for better treatment in a care landscape changed by COVID-19. 

The Advocacy Summit featured speakers on diverse topics like cancer policy in Washington, how practice operations have changed due to COVID-19, and new tools like telemedicine that patients can use to stay safe.

Presentations and recordings of the virtual Community Oncology Advocacy Summit will soon be posted for on-demand viewing by registered attendees at https://events.communityoncology.org/AdvocacySummit/.
