2018 ACS CAN Oklahoma City Cancer Forum
The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) advocates on a federal and state level for policies that protect and improve the health of Oklahomans and nationwide.
As an advocate for the people of Oklahoma and nationwide, ACS CAN works for policies that address quality of life, access to care, prevention and health and nutrition. As part of those efforts, ACS CAN will once again host its Oklahoma City Cancer Policy Forum to educate patients, providers, legislators and the public about polices that produce better health outcomes.
This year, ACS CAN will be hosting a panel discussion about cancer research in Oklahoma City on November 8, 2018. We will be discussing Oklahoma's first and only National Cancer Institute (NCI) accrediated facilities, ongoing efforts to reduce Oklahoma cancer rates, and how to continue efforts to reduce tobacco use in our state.
Our panel will include experts with State Policy with Oklahoma ACS CAN Government Relations Director, Justin Wood, Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trustfund (TSET) staff and Stephenson Cancer Center researcher.
ACS CAN is committed to ensuring that our progress on critical policy issues continues by collaborating with key partners. We invite you and your organization to join us in the fight against cancer by sponsoring this year’s events in Oklahoma City and Tulsa.
