COVID-19 is continuing to make headlines around the world this year. Yet cancer will kill a larger number of people globally – 10 million every year. Patients with cancer are more vulnerable to contracting COVID-19, and have more than double the death rate from COVID-19 compared to patients without cancer.
Against that backdrop, Forbes China will hold the second “Forbes China Healthcare Summit” on August 28, 2021 (August 27, 2021 in the U.S.). The theme of the online summit will be “Advance the Global Fight Against Cancer and Achieve an International Moonshot in the Post-Pandemic Era.”
The event is being organized by Forbes China in strategic partnership with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) in New York.
