Appendix A

Statement of Task

An ad hoc committee will plan and host a 1.5-day public workshop that will examine health equity and the social determinants of health in the context of cancer, and consider opportunities to effectively use big data and convergence science to improve health outcomes and reduce disparities. The workshop will feature invited presentations and panel discussions on topics that may include

  • The impact of social determinants of health on cancer incidence and outcomes
  • Ways to capture precise and meaningful data on social determinants of health in oncology (social “omics”)
  • Potential biomarkers of environmental and social factors that may affect cancer incidence and care outcomes (e.g., microbiome, exposome, and epigenome)
  • The potential advantages and limitations of various methods for identifying geographic populations and communities at risk (e.g., state, county, zip code, city ward, or congressional district)
  • Potential opportunities to reduce bias in capturing big data and applying computational methods to inform cancer care
  • Examples of how community engagement and big data could be used to inform policies to promote health equity in oncology

The planning committee will develop the agenda for the workshop sessions, select and invite speakers and discussants, and moderate the discus-

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine held the workshop Applying Big Data to Address the Social Determinants of Health in Oncology on October 28–29, 2019, in Washington, DC. This workshop examined social determinants of health (SDOH) in the context of cancer, and considered opportunities to effectively leverage big data to improve health equity and reduce disparities. The workshop featured presentations and discussion by experts in technology, oncology, and SDOH, as well as representatives from government, industry, academia, and health care systems. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.
