Washington 2022 Virtual ACS CAN Policy Forum

Thursday, September 29, 2022 - 12:00pm

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 Washington State Policy Forum is a premiere event that brings together more than 300 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 here to support our lifesaving work.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2022 WA Policy Forum might look different this year but our passion and commitment to fight cancer is unchanged. The health and safety of all our guests and participants is our number one goal. Please see below for important details which will continue to be updated based on our unique needs and review the COVID-19 Waiver.

If you are feeling sick or have been recently exposed to someone who recently tested positive for COVID-19, you should stay home. People who have underlying health conditions or taking medications that weaken the immune system, should talk to their healthcare provider before attending large gatherings.

RECOGNIZE COVID-19 SYMPTOMS The CDC has identified the symptoms of a COVID-19 infection. If you have one or more of these symptoms on the day of the event, please stay home. If you are waiting for COVID-19 test results or have had close contact with a person who has tested positive for or who has COVID-19 symptoms, please stay home unless you get a negative test result before the event.

YOUR SAFETY IS OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY The COVID-19 virus and its variants are highly contagious. Some people infected with these viruses get severely ill, become hospitalized or die. Event attendees acknowledge the risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus, assume all such risk, and the American Cancer Society, Inc., shall not be held liable.
