The Association of Community Cancer Centers' awards are designed to confer special recognition on members of the oncology community who have distinguished themselves in service to patients, the community, the profession, and the Association.
Cancer Program Member Awards
The ACCC Innovator Awards honor member programs that have exhibited forward-thinking strategic planning and developed pioneering programs and creative solutions. Innovative programs advance the goals of improving access, quality, and/or cost-effectiveness of cancer care.
Innovator Award winners agree to present their innovative programs at ACCC’s annual National Oncology Conference. The innovators share their outstanding programs and replicable models with meeting attendees. Additionally, ACCC promotes these innovative programs to oncology care providers and the broader healthcare community throughout the year.
- The Annual Achievement Award annually recognizes an individual who have made outstanding contributions to community cancer care and to patients with cancer.
- The Clinical Research Award is awarded to an individual, or individuals, whose research have significantly and positively impacted the oncology patient, family and/or community.
- The David King Community Clinical Scientist Award recognizes individuals who have demonstrated leadership in the development, participation, and evaluation of clinical studies and/or are active in the development of new screening, risk assessment, treatment, or supportive care programs for cancer patients.
Award winners are honored and receive their awards during either the Annual National Meeting in the spring (Annual Achievement and David King Community Clinical Scientist Awards) or the National Oncology Conference (Clinical Research Award) in the fall.
