There are many places where people with cancer can go for treatment, but not all cancer care is created equally. Community oncology is different because the doctors responsible for treating patients actually own and operate their local practices. Receiving cancer care at practices right in their own community is convenient for people with cancer – and their families – and typically costs less than treatment in a hospital setting, without sacrificing access to innovations like the latest procedures and clinical trials.

Join the Community Oncology Alliance Patient Advocacy Network (CPAN) for a virtual Advocacy Chat on Wednesday, August 12 from 12-12:30 p.m. ET. You will learn more about why where you are treated for cancer makes a difference, the impact of community oncology, and why it is important to preserve local, affordable, and accessible cancer care in America.

This event will be part of our inaugural virtual CPAN Advocacy Chats – short, monthly educational webinars on key cancer issues and the policies that impact them. Each month will feature a new topic and special guests joining us. Patients, survivors, caregivers, and other cancer care advocates are all invited to join us for these free, interactive, virtual events!
