This morning, PACE (Patient Access to Cancer care Excellence), a Lilly Oncology initiative, released the PACE Cancer Perception Index: A Six-Nation, Public Opinion Survey of Cancer Knowledge and Attitudes.
The survey, which comes in advance of World Cancer Day (February 4,) polled 4,341 individuals from six countries—the United States, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom and was commissioned by Lilly Oncology and conducted by GfK, one of the world’s leading research companies.
There will be a webcast today (1/30) from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm EST to discuss the findings and you can register for it by clicking here: http://www.videonewswire.com/event.asp?id=91886
A Multimedia News Release on the survey features several resources illustrating the findings, including an archived version of an audio webcast (available January 30 beginning at 1:30 p.m. EST)—in addition to a press release, infographic, video interviews, survey fact sheet and PACE fact sheet.
