About the Event

American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), the advocacy affiliate of the American Cancer Society will host their annual policy forum in person on Oct. 11th, 2023. This year we will focus our conversation on access and insurance coverage of biomarker testing in Oregon.

The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) is the nation’s leading advocacy organization working every day to make issues facing cancer patients a national and state priority.

The ACS CAN Oregon Cancer Policy Forum is a premiere event that brings together more than 100 leaders from business, academia, health care, government, life sciences, and cancer research communities to support ACS CAN’s mission.

Translating Action Into Influence. Eliminating cancer relies as much on public policy as it does on medical research. Cancer fighting public policies such as sustained investments in medical research, stronger efforts to reduce tobacco use, improved access to care and better quality of life for patients help ensure our innovation ecosystem stays strong and patients and families receive the care they need.

Partnering for Patients. Support for this event highlights your company’s commitment to saving more lives from cancer. Come network and build relationships with business, medical research, and health care leaders in attendance.

If you are unable to attend please consider donating to support our lifesaving work.
