Millions of Americans share a common experience—the survivorship experience—of living with, through, and beyond a cancer diagnosis. This experience can be a transforming, positive force to affect change.
The NCCS Cancer Policy and Advocacy Team (CPAT) provides cancer survivors and caregivers with the tools and training to apply their experiences to advocate effectively. Through events hosted by NCCS, CPAT members gain an in-depth understanding of public policies impacting cancer patients and can be a voice for policies that ensure survivors’ needs are at the center of every phase of cancer care delivery. Through their work, CPAT members support NCCS’ policy priorities.
NCCS welcomes anyone who is interested in making a difference for cancer survivors to join CPAT.
The Ellen L. Stovall Award for Innovation in Patient-Centered Cancer Care is a unique opportunity for patients and survivors to recognize pioneers who are transforming the cancer care system.
The NCCS Cancer Policy & Advocacy Team (CPAT) is a program for survivors and caregivers to learn about pressing policy issues that affect quality cancer care in order to be engaged as advocates in public policy around the needs of cancer survivors.
