Financial toxicity refers to the harm from high healthcare costs that can compromise a patient’s health, security, and well-being. These expenses are notably burdensome in oncology patients due to the high costs of cancer treatment. Dr. Chino is a leading researcher in financial toxicity, motivated by the personal experience of her late husband’s cancer journey. Her talk will discuss how financial toxicity disproportionately affects populations made vulnerable by structural racism, the effects of financial toxicity, and potential solutions to financial toxicity on a policy, provider, and patient level.
