Disparities in Access and Health Care with Karen Winkfield

National Cancer Prevention Workshop

Karen Winkfield, MD says pandemic caused ’80 percent reduction’ in cancer screening rates

“We know that there was a lot of fear about getting screens done during the COVID pandemic. In fact, access was restricted… some of the screening facilities… were closed during the initial part of COVID. So there are estimates that for some cancers that we can screen for– we can screen for about six different cancers–that there are some estimates about 80 percent reduction in terms of the screening rates.”
