Program Announcement:  CCCA Announces Innovative New Program

CCCA is proud to announce the launch of Translating Our Voices into Action: Childhood Cancer Drug Development 101. This program features a two-day training workshop in June, tailored for parents of children with cancer, survivors and supporters who exhibit natural leadership in their own childhood cancer organizations and communities. The workshop will train approximately 30 leaders to become informed, responsible advocates with the knowledge and tools to effectively push for improved therapies for our children.

Graduates of the program will be capable of mobilizing their constituencies and communities to take action around key issues in pediatric oncology research and therapy development at the national and local levels.
