Patient Advocacy Educational Event Fort Worth

Texas Oncology is teaming up with Community Oncology Alliance (COA) Patient Advocacy Network (CPAN) to launch a local chapter. CPAN is a nationally recognized patient advocacy group providing the patient’s voice along with community oncologists, nurses, and healthcare administrators in the fight to preserve community cancer care and access to local care.

Educational topics will include: insight into how national policy issues impact local patient care, how oncologists advocate for their patients, COA and CPAN advocacy initiatives, and opportunities for you to become a Cancer Care Advocate.

If you are a patient, cancer survivor, family member/caregiver clinician, employee, or member of the community, we welcome you to join us for an informative and inspiring evening on Thursday July 25, 2019 at 5:30pm at:
