MICHAEL SERES & MARK REISENAUER - BRINGING BRIGHT IDEAS TO CANCER CARE - NEW CHALLENGE DESIGNED TO INSPIRE NON-MEDICINE INNOVATIONS
BRINGING BRIGHT IDEAS TO CANCER CARE
New Challenge Designed to Inspire Non-Medicine Innovations
By 2030, the global cancer burden is expected to grow to 22.2 million cancer cases.[i] Cancer’s increasing prevalence and the need for more therapies and greater accessibility to them is top of mind for many, especially in light of Vice President Joe Biden’s National Cancer Moonshot Initiative.
Yet, improving cancer care is about more than just treatments. Patients today are able to access more resources and tools than ever before to support their cancer experience, but many still have unmet needs.
The C3 Prize™ (see-three prize) was created to uncover new tools and resources that can potentially help patients with cancer, their caregivers and loved ones live better today. More specifically, the C3 Prize seeks submissions in four areas where patients living with cancer and the cancer community face daily challenges: navigating the health care system, adhering to complex medical care requirements, coordinating care and surviving life post-treatment.
Astellas Oncology, along with Robert Herjavec, star of ABC’s Emmy Award-winning hit television show Shark Tank, Stanford Medicine X and MATTER, launched the C3 Prize to give patients and caregivers an opportunity to pursue new ideas and solutions that can make a difference in the lives of patients with cancer, their loved ones and those who care for them. Entries will be accepted through August 8, followed by a live pitch for five finalists at Stanford Medicine X to a panel of judges including Robert Herjavec. From there, three winners will be awarded grants totaling $100,000, mentorship from Astellas and membership to healthcare technology incubator MATTER to bring their ideas to life.
On Monday, July 11, Michael Seres, Founder of 11Health and Mark Reisenauer, senior vice president, oncology sales and marketing, Astellas, are available to discuss the C3 Prize, raise awareness about the need to improve cancer care and explain how your listeners can get involved.
