Statement of Need

Where the predominance of melanoma is seen in White people, roughly 20 times that of Black people, the weight of later stage presentation, delayed treatment, and poorer outcomes falls on those of racial and ethnic underserved populations. A culmination of biases, disparities, and inequities continues a cycle of inadequate oncology treatment for melanoma, thus resulting in delayed diagnosis and suboptimal clinical management, prognosis, and survival rate.

This live Q&A session is your opportunity to ask questions based on the CME Outfitters BriefCase that focused on racial and ethnic disparities and health inequities in melanoma. To view the full activity ahead of this live Q&A, click here.
