Association of Community Cancer Centers Honored 14 Cancer Programs for Their Innovations

ROCKVILLE, Md.—The Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) announced the winners of the first annual ACCC Innovator Awards, honoring member programs that have exhibited forward-thinking strategic planning and developed pioneering programs and replicable models. Fourteen cancer programs were recognized at ACCC’s 28th National Oncology Conference in Seattle, Wash., on October 21, 2011.

“From nearly 100 submissions, 14 ACCC-member programs were selected to receive a 2011 ACCC Innovator Award,” said ACCC President Thomas Whittaker, MD, FACP. “These community cancer centers are quite diverse—representing all regions of the country, programs of all sizes, and with varying levels of resources. They share, however, the will, the drive, and the spirit to leverage technology, improve planning and management processes, and empower their staff and their patients.”

Videos of the award winners are available at: www.youtube.com/user/ACCCvision.
