Therese Lindé, GCR Co-Founder & Strategic Advisor, and Elekta VP & Head of Global Policy & Patient Access shared:

“Our inauguration program began with a scientific symposium on 'Radiotherapy in the Era of Precision Cancer Medicine' and I was proud to moderate the session with distinguished specialists: Prof. Pat Price, Dr. Alison Tree, and Prof. Eric Deutsch. It was wonderful to hear from these authentic advocates who see the disparities in global radiotherapy access and are actively doing something about it.”
