This is the annual meeting of the Cancer Center Administrator’s Forum (CCAF), whose mission is to provide a mechanism by which administrators of NCI designated cancer centers, and those that are seeking NCI designation, can:
· Educate each other regarding best practices for administration of NCI designated centers,
· Convene at least one annual meeting with agendas designed to educate membership about current issues impacting NCI designated Cancer Centers,
· Provide a network for members to share knowledge and expertise with their colleagues,
· Support communication between NCI program staff and Center administrators to enhance the effectiveness of the NCI CCSG guidelines in meeting the objectives of the NCI Centers program,
Ultimately allowing NCI designated cancers centers to thrive and reduce the pain and suffering caused by cancer.
The symposium is designed for members of the Cancer Center Administrator’s Forum, and interested colleagues.
