What is the Summit?

The virtual Community Oncology Advocacy Summit: The Power of Advocacy will be an exciting day featuring the latest updates and education on key issues impacting cancer care in America today.

Over half of the cancer care in America is provided by community oncologists, and this Summit teaches attendees about the important issues faced by providers and patients in their community. “Graduates” of the Community Oncology Advocacy Summit leave equipped to tell their representatives and policymakers about concrete solutions to improve the cancer care experience.

Why Attend the Summit?

Effective advocacy begins with education, and the Community Oncology Advocacy Summit will provide a comprehensive look at the issues impacting cancer care today and tomorrow.

Attendees will hear from policy experts around the oncology world who are listening to the pulse of Washington. Just as important as understanding the issues is knowing how to present them to different audiences – leadership and communications will explore the value of personalized messaging and creating tight, effective advocacy materials.

Get the whole advocacy package – Join us! The live event will take place on Wednesday, July 21, 2021 and is free for all to attend.
