“The work you are doing is so critical and we can’t thank you enough for being a safety net for thousands of patients who need people and services like yours,” Lindsay Treadway, VP Public Affairs & Advocacy Relations, Exelixis Inc.

WCRC staff were honored to have joined Exelixis employees in a meaningful conversation to close out National Minority Health Month. A big thank you to the BlackEXELence and Exel Juntos Employee Resource Groups for hosting this insightful event. It was a great opportunity to hear personal stories from employees who have faced cancer and to shine a light on the ongoing health disparities affecting racial and ethnic minority communities.

WCRC shared how we are working to address health disparities in our community and highlighted barriers that prevent some of our clients from accessing the cancer care they need and deserve. We also offered insights on how to raise awareness about clinical trials in underserved patient populations.
