What is the difference between the awards?
ACCC awards are divided into three categories: Cancer Program Member Awards; Individual Awards; and Individual/Organizational Awards.
  • Cancer Program Member Awards (Innovator Awards) honor member programs that exhibit forward-thinking strategic planning and have developed pioneering programs and replicable models.
  • Individual Awards (Clinical Research and David King Community Clinical Scientist Awards) are extended annually to individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the oncology patient, family and/or community.
  • Individual/Organizational Awards (Annual Achievement Award) recognize individuals or organizations that have made significant contributions, nationally and/or internationally, to cancer care and to patients with cancer.
How are award recipients selected?
The awards process varies depending on whether or not it is a Cancer Program Member Award, Individual Award, or an Individual/Organizational Award. In general, however, a Call for Nominations or Abstracts is issued, followed by a review and a selection period. Award recipients are honored and issued their awards during the National Oncology Conference which is held in the fall.
When will I be notified if my nominee is chosen as an Award Winner?
Award winners are notified immediately after the review period is completed.
When and where are Award Winners recognized?
