2024 ASCO Advocacy Summit

Your voice matters. As a cancer care provider you are uniquely qualified to educate Congress about policies that directly impact your ability to care for patients with cancer and conduct research that drives scientific breakthroughs.

The Association for Clinical Oncology’s (ASCO) Advocacy Summit allows ASCO members to speak directly with Members of Congress and their staff, while also providing the important opportunity to hear from leading voices on health policy issues affecting patients and the profession.

During the two-day event, ASCO supplies all the resources and information needed for successful meetings with lawmakers. Keep an eye out for additional information in the coming weeks.

Join us April 16–17, 2024, in Washington, D.C. to make your voice heard!

Registration is limited to qualifying, domestic ASCO members.
