For more than a 100 years, The American Cancer Society (ACS) has been leading the fight to end cancer. One of the ways ACS is able to continue such important work is their Discovery Gala, an event dedicated to saving lives and celebrating life. There is still time to purchase tickets for this year’s gala which will feature distinguished honorees and guests including ACS CEO Gary Reed. On this week’s episode of the What 2 Know podcast I had the pleasure of chatting with John Hinshaw (former Chair, ACS) and John A. Orwin (current Chair, ACS)  about the upcoming event and how data, tech and life sciences are combating cancer.

John Hinshaw served as the former EVP and Chief Customer Officer at HPE, which allowed us to discuss the role technology plays in healthcare. John A. Orwin served as the former president and CEO at Relypsa Pharmaceuticals, which allowed us to discuss how healthcare must integrate with life sciences and data in order to continue evolving. Both of these guys are incredibly passionate about the fight to end cancer and have a wealth of information on the tools necessary to continue to fight for a cure. Take a listen below.
