The Quest for Quality Cancer Care, Part 2:
The Employer and Employee Journey Continues

Currently 3.6 million U.S. employees have cancer, at an average cost to the employer and employee of $135,000 for treatment. Not surprising, cancer is one of the top concerns for employers, not only because of the exorbitant costs for both company and employee, but also because of the special resources and support needs of cancer survivors as they return to work.

In our March 28th Cancer Care Symposium, we will delve into the monumental challenges facing employers to effectively manage cancer in the workplace. Our lineup of speakers includes recognized cancer care experts, experienced benefits managers, and a former City of Dallas Mayor, Laura Miller, who will share her personal odyssey twice over with the feared "C diagnosis". Reserve your seat today to participate in a thoughtful discussionof innovative cancer management strategies and practical yet compassionate workplace support policies.
