Envisioning an ‘Own the Podium’ Strategy for Cancer Immunotherapy in Canada

‘Own the Podium’ is the name of a strategy implemented in Canadian sports for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics to increase Canada’s number of podium finishes It worked so well for the program that an organization was created to continue to deliver on this very specific objective. This year’s Public Forum asks ‘could a similar approach be taken to increase the survival rate of Canadians diagnosed with cancer’? During the forum we’ll hear from a clinician scientist, a patient partner, and a scientist on how novel clinical trials and exciting science is aiming to achieve such lofty goals.
