SAN FRANCISCO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / May 19, 2022 / Jaguar Health, Inc. (NASDAQ:JAGX) is hosting a special media event and performance in New York City on Monday, May 23rd, 2022 from 12:30 to 2:30 PM Eastern to celebrate the launch of the Jaguar Health Canine Cancer: Take C.H.A.R.G.E. (Canine Health And ReGistry Exchange) initiative - the first-ever U.S. Canine Cancer Registry and Cancer Care index - because protecting dogs from cancer begins with knowing its impact by breed, type, age, gender, and location.

"This is a special event for ALL interested parties - dog owners, veterinarians, veterinary oncology specialists, investors, the media, and anyone who is concerned about addressing and managing cancer in our four-legged best friends - and the event is taking place on the first annual National Canine Cancer Awareness Day!" said Lisa Conte, Jaguar Health's founder, president, and CEO. "This first-ever U.S. Canine Cancer Registry and Cancer Care Index is being created to assess the prevalence and incidence of cancer in dogs. We will be revealing data at the event from the first nationwide Gallup survey of pet owners addressing their experience with canine cancer, as well as the registry itself that is based on the analysis of thousands of anonymized canine medical records. The data may also provide insights to help better understand cancer in humans as well."
