Today, we are excited to feature Dana Dornsife, founder, and CEO of Lazarex Cancer Foundation. This nationwide foundation assists advanced-stage cancer patients and the medically underserved by helping with funds needed to participate in FDA clinical trials.

In this episode, Dana shares how a family experience with cancer led her to the creation of Lazarex. She discusses how her foundation addresses barriers like social determinants of health, minority participation, and equitable access. She also talks about overcoming challenges, creating solutions from the bottom up, receiving strength in numbers, and more.

Dana’s insights, motivation, and passion are truly inspirational. If you are interested in the issue of disparities in healthcare and improving patient access to clinical trials, this episode is one you shouldn’t miss.
