Fort Wayne Medical Oncology and Hematology is teaming up with Community Oncology Alliance (COA) Patient Advocacy Network (CPAN) to launch a local chapter. CPAN is a nationally recognized patient advocacy group providing the patient’s voice along with community oncologists, nurses, and healthcare administrators in the fight to preserve community cancer care and access to local care.
Educational topics will include: Insight into how national policy issues impact local patient care, how oncologists advocate for their patients, COA and CPAN advocacy initiatives, and opportunities for you to become a Cancer Care Advocate.
If you are a patient, cancer survivor, family member/caregiver, clinician, employee, or a member of the community, we welcome you to join us for an informative and inspiring evening Thursday, July 26, at our South Office.
Guest speakers include: Lakshmi Aggarwal, M.D., Medical Oncologist, Lisa Poiry, OCN, CPAN Advocacy Chapter Leader, and Rose Gerber, Director of Patient Advocacy & Education Community Oncology Alliance.
