The European Parliament’s EPP Group is holding an Online Hearing on the “Right to be Forgotten for Cancer Survivors” this Wednesday, May 12th. YCE’s Katie Rizvi will be taking part as one of the speakers.
The Right to be Forgotten refers to unjust financial discrimination that cancer survivors face long after their treatment is over – be it through health insurance rates or even access to bank loans. It is also one of YCE’s top policy priorities, as laid out in our White Paper.
The event will take place this Wednesday 12 May from 14:00 CEST/Brussels time, and will be led by MEP Tomislav Sokol with contributions from the Portuguese Minister of Science, Technology and Higher Education Manuel Heitor and MEPs Bartosz Arłukowicz (Chair of BECA Committee), Cindy Franssen (EPP BECA Coordinator) and Peter Liese (EPP BECA Shadow Rapporteur).
