Our Work with Patients

View By:
insight panel

The Pfizer Oncology Insights Panel aims to improve key aspects of non-clinical patient care to help people affected by cancer.

At Pfizer Oncology, we believe it's our responsibility to help support and inspire those who have been affected by cancer.

We're telling the stories of real people who are living with cancer and providing tools and resources like the free ByYourSide app. 

We hope you'll join us in our efforts.
