An important part of the Iowa Oncology Society's mission is to demonstrate a strong commitment to supporting the educational needs of multidisciplinary cancer care team members, including allied health professionals, who are vital to the delivery of high-quality patient care across Iowa.
We are pleased to announce the new IOS Allied Health Professionals Award, a monetary award created to support the professional development of IOS allied health professional members (Associate Member, Fellow, Advance Practice Professional or RN (Associate Member).
Applications for this award are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year. Once an application is submitted, a subcommittee consisting of several IOS Board of Directors will review the application and decide whether or not the applicant is selected to an award up to $1,500. This award is intended to support the attendance to an official meeting of a national oncology, hematology, or cancer-related organization. Such organizations may include—but are not limited to—the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), American Society of Hematology (ASH), Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC), Iowa Oncology Society (IOS), and the Oncology Nursing Society (ONS).
