Spencer brings chemotherapy shortages to legislators’ attention at House Cancer Caucus briefing

On June 6, Ryan Spencer, MD, MS, associate professor in the Division of Gynecologic Oncology, helped organize and participated in the Society of Gynecologic Oncology’s House Cancer Caucus briefing on chemotherapy shortages. Spencer is the chair of the SGO’s Legislative and Regulatory Affairs Committee.

The briefing was co-sponsored by Rep. Derek Kilmer (D-WA) and Rep. Brian Higgins (D-NY). Members of the U.S. House of Representatives and their staff were present to learn about the current chemotherapy crisis and steps to alleviate these in the future.

Incredible work, Dr. Spencer!
