This webinar focused on the recently released Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) technical brief, Disparities and Barriers to Pediatric Cancer Survivorship Care.

Webinar presenters discussed the background of the report, its findings, as well as crucial next steps to address disparities and barriers in survivorship care.
