Monthly Links Roundup: July 2018

This month, we announced that Richard and Susan Rogel would receive AACI’s inaugural Champions for Cures Award, which recognizes individuals who lead and support efforts to cure cancer and inspire others to do the same.

The award will be presented to the Rogels in recognition of their $150 million gift to the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center, which was renamed Rogel Cancer Center in their honor.

During the most popular vacation time of the year, we shared sun safety tips for UV Safety Month.

We brought attention to sarcoma—often described as “the forgotten cancer”—for Sarcoma Awareness Month.

AACI’s 10th Annual CRI Meeting was held July 11-12.

Dr. Cheryl L. Willman, CEO and director of University of New Mexico Comprehensive Cancer Center, encouraged AACI members to continue advocating for the Congressionally-mandated 340B drug pricing program, which is currently at risk due to a CMS rule introduced in January 2018.

Coming up in August:

  • World Lung Cancer Day
  • National Breastfeeding Month
  • National Immunization Awareness Month
  • Summer Sun Safety Month
