ASCO's mission has always centered around improving the treatment and care of people living with cancer. This mission includes serving not only the educational needs of the professional oncology community, but the educational needs of the patient community as well. As the leading professional medical society in clinical oncology, ASCO shares your goal of helping people living with cancer obtain accurate, reliable, and timely information about their disease and treatment options. To that end, we encourage you to take part in the patient advocate programs that ASCO offers. You may learn more about these programs by exploring the sections below.
