Annual Achievement Award

The Annual Achievement Award has been given since 1980 to distinguished individuals or organizations in a wide variety of fields, who have reflected values of community cancer care through their outstanding contributions.

2020 Annual Achievement Award Recipient

Dr.-Shulman-200x200 Lawrence N. Shulman, MD, MACP, FASCO is Professor of Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, where he is the Deputy Director for Clinical Services of the Abramson Cancer Center. Dr. Shulman leads the Cancer Quality program and strategic development of Cancer Services across the University of Pennsylvania Health System’s 6 hospitals and affiliated practices. He is also Director of the Center for Global Cancer Medicine. Dr. Shulman is internationally known as a breast medical oncologist, oncology practice thought leader, and mentor. His work in low-resourced areas throughout the United States and overseas is particularly notable. Dr. Shulman and his colleagues trained hundreds of clinicians in breast health care and provided breast exam screening to thousands of patients in four districts of Rwanda. Their efforts have led to a significant improvement in patient outcomes in an area where women have a much higher risk of dying of breast cancer. 

Dr. Shulman’s leadership extends to his serving on the National Cancer Policy Forum of the National Academies, and as the former Chair of the Commission on Cancer, the American Society of Clinical Oncology’s Quality of Care Committee, and the Commission on Cancer’s Quality Integration Committee.
