Steven L. D’Amato, BSPharm, BCOP, Becomes President of the Association of Community Cancer Centers

ROCKVILLE, Md.—Steven L. D’Amato, BSPharm, BCOP, became President of the Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) at its 41st Annual Meeting, CANCERSCAPE on March 18, 2015. He is Executive Director of New England Cancer Specialists in Scarborough, Maine, and a Clinical Associate Professor at the University of Tufts College of Medicine. He serves as a member of the Maine Medical Center Institutional Review Board in Portland, Maine, and has had experience in clinical oncology for 30 years in both the hospital and private practice settings.

Mr. D’Amato has been active in ACCC for many years, serving on the Program Committee and as an advisory board member for ACCC’s Oncology Pharmacy Education Network (OPEN). Most recently he served on ACCC’s Board of Trustees as Secretary for two years.

"I want to thank the ACCC membership for giving me this opportunity to serve," said Mr. D’Amato. "Each ACCC President selects a theme issue. I’m looking forward to a focus on the oncology medical home—an issue which resonates with the themes of quality and value, and the multidisciplinary nature of cancer care delivery."

Mr. D'Amato has lectured extensively on pain management, end-of-life care, and oncology practice. He is a board member of the Community Cancer Center in South Portland, Maine, a non-profit organization providing education and support to cancer patients.

He earned his undergraduate degree from the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy in Boston, Massachusetts.

Since 1974, ACCC has advocated for quality comprehensive cancer care for all—a guiding principle under healthcare reform. ACCC continues to provide resources, tools, and networking to support the nearly 20,000 cancer care professionals from 1,900 hospitals and practices nationwide that are affiliated with ACCC.
