Working With Media
The Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC), the premier education and advocacy organization for the oncology team, welcomes media interest in the Association and its activities.
ACCC works with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and Congress to ensure continued patient access in both the hospital outpatient and physician office settings. ACCC leads efforts aimed at assuring that cancer programs are adequately funded, thereby allowing our members to focus on what they do best: providing quality cancer care. Approximately 20,000 cancer care professionals from 1,900 hospitals and private practices are affiliated with ACCC. It is estimated that 60 percent of cancer patients nationwide are treated by a member of ACCC.
