Annual Meeting Coverage: ACS Lecturer Edward Partridge, MD | B.J. Rimel, MD
Edward E. Partridge, MD, Director of the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Comprehensive Cancer Center and Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, was the invited American Cancer Society lecturer this year at the SGO Annual Meeting on Women’s Cancer. His talk is clearly one of the highlights of this year’s very exciting meeting.
Dr. Partridge discussed the tragic loss of 600 people to cancer every day due to inequalities of access to care and cancer screening. I was overwhelmed by this number. We as providers of care for women with cancer need a renewed spirit to engage our communities in eliminating these tragic losses. I look forward to seeing more research and funding for this important topic.
