Purpose

Our purpose for this Advisory Board is to engage with cancer survivors for feedback on the events, conferences and programs we develop, in order to improve and tailor our offerings to meet the specific needs of this group. Advisors improve the programs we develop by helping us better understand the survivor, caregiver and family point of view.

It is important that this Advisory Board be representative of diverse communities and backgrounds to meet the needs of all survivors, caregivers and families.  Black, Indigenous, and people of color are encouraged to apply.
