The tournament game telecasts on the ACC Network included information about cancer and the research being conducted by member schools of the ACC. In addition, educational materials and resources were available to fans at the ACC FanFest and through the official ACC website, theACC.com. Fans were also encouraged to visit Cancer.Net, ASCO's patient website, which provides oncologist-approved information about cancer.
