Harmon J. Eyre, MD, to Receive Association of Community Cancer Centers’ Annual Achievement Award

ROCKVILLE, Md.—Harmon J. Eyre, MD, will be honored with the Association of Community Cancer Centers’ Annual Achievement Award. The award is given in recognition of his long-standing advocacy, dedication, and commitment to promoting the goals of cancer prevention, early detection, and quality treatment.

The award will be presented to Dr. Eyre on Thursday, March 29, 2007, at the Awards Luncheon during ACCC’s 33rd Annual National Meeting in Baltimore, Md.

Dr. Eyre has served as the chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society since 1993. As an American Cancer Society volunteer for more than 22 years and national president in 1998, he has been instrumental in developing the Society’s priorities, including efforts to decrease smoking, improve diet, detect cancer at the earliest stage, and provide the critical support cancer patients need. Since joining the Society’s national staff, Dr. Eyre has guided efforts to enhance and focus the research program, upgrade the Society’s advocacy capacity, and concentrate community cancer control efforts in areas where they will be most effective.

Dr. Eyre’s work follows a successful academic career as a medical oncologist at the University of Utah, where he served as associate chairman of internal medicine and deputy director of the Huntsman Cancer Institute.
