ASCO Compiles Resources for Physicians and Patients Impacted by Hurricane Michael

October 11, 2018

As Hurricane Michael poses a threat to Florida and other states, ASCO has assembled a list of resources and information to support cancer care providers and patients. The society has assembled a list of resources, including those provided by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, emergency contact and preparedness information, a listing of physicians willing to see displaced patients, and information on state societies.

The NCI Contact Center can help with disaster preparation, updates, and finding care, Monday-Friday from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM Eastern time. They can be reached at: 1-800-4-CANCER (after business hours, recorded information is available).

For patients, Cancer.net has helpful information regarding what to do in an emergency, food safety tips for severe weather, and more.

For practice inquiries, please email practice@asco.org, or call Julia Tomkins (571-483-1651) or Allison Hirschorn (571-483-1653).
