Former Senate Legislative Analyst to Lead ACS CAN Oklahoma’s Advocacy Efforts
OKLAHOMA CITY — Feb. 18, 2020 — Matt Glanville, who spent 14 years as a public servant in the Oklahoma State Senate, joined the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network this month as state government relations director.
Glanville, a native of Oklahoma City, most recently served as a legislative analyst in the Senate. Previously, he was press secretary to the office of the Senate President Pro Tempore.
“I am excited to join ACS CAN as we work to achieve progress on legislative solutions,” said Glanville. “I look forward to working with elected officials and leaders in the health care community in an effort to build a healthier Oklahoma with expanded access to quality care.”
Glanville will lead volunteers and staff across the state through campaigns to achieve progress on evidence-based policy and legislative solutions designed to eliminate cancer as a major health problem. This year, ACS CAN Oklahoma hopes to protect vital funding for programs to prevent cancer and reduce tobacco use and defeat any attempts to weaken or undermine effective tobacco control legislation.
“We are thrilled to have Matt leading our advocacy efforts for cancer patients, survivors and caregivers in Oklahoma,” said ACS CAN Government Relations Director James Gray. “He brings a significant public policy background that will help our advocates navigate the halls of the Capitol and achieve real positive change.”
Glanville is based in the Oklahoma City office of the American Cancer Society.
