During the past three decades, the number of cancer survivors has increased dramatically due to improved early detection of first malignancies and the use of effective therapies. Today, there are more than 13 million cancer survivors in the United States; this number is expected to grow to 18 million by 2022. ASCO continues its commitment to improving the care of cancer survivors through advocacy, delivery of high quality patient care, education, policy, and research.
Cancer Survivorship Committee
The Cancer Survivorship Committee provides leadership and oversight of ASCO’s cancer survivorship activities and assist in the implementation of the cancer survivorship components within ASCO’s mission and strategic plan. The committee reviews and assesses ASCO’s cancer survivorship portfolio (cancer education, clinical guidelines, patient information, policy, publications, research, and training) and works to enhance the quality and quantity of cancer survivorship material in each program. Furthermore, the committee ensures ASCO’s interests in cancer survivorship are represented in the larger cancer survivorship community. Volunteer to Serve on the Cancer Survivorship Committee
