Forty Under 40 in Cancer is an awards initiative supported by the Association for Value-Based Cancer Care, Amplity Health, Swim Across America, and the National Community Oncology Dispensing Association, Inc that aims to identify and recognize the contributions being made across the field of cancer by rising stars and emerging leaders age 40 and under. Individuals may be nominated in a number of categories, including:
- Clinical and Patient Care Professional
- Biopharma, Diagnostics, and Devices
- Research, Science, and Technology
- Government, Regulatory, Payer, and Provider
- Patient, Advocacy, and Policy
Finalists and awardees are selected by a panel of reviewers from across diverse roles in oncology and are honored during a private celebration in June.
Conquer Cancer® Council Advisory Group
The Conquer Cancer Council provides a platform for advocates, clinicians, researchers, and industry stakeholders (from both for-profit and non-profit organizations) to come together and positively impact cancer care by discussing challenges, exploring potential solutions, and exchanging ideas and unique perspectives.
Some of the organizations with whom we partner include Asembia, the Association of Community Cancer Centers, Community Oncology Alliance, and the American Society of Hematology.
Supporting Aspiring Investigators
In 2023, we proudly joined with the ASCO Foundation’s Conquer Cancer® initiative to present Andrew Stiff, MD, PhD, of Ohio State University with the Young Investigator Award. This 1-year, $50,000 award will provide Andrew with funding during his transition from a fellowship program to a faculty appointment. This support includes his personnel and/or research expenses as well as travel to attend the Conquer Cancer Grants & Awards ceremony at the ASCO Annual meeting.
