A decade dedicated to breast cancer care advocacy garners ASCO Award for researcher
Date:6/7/2011

SEATTLE Benjamin Anderson, M.D., a researcher in the Public Health Sciences Division of Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and director of Seattle Cancer Care Alliance's Breast Health Clinic, is the 2011 recipient of the Partners in Progress award given by the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

The award recognizes a person involved in activities that impact public awareness about cancer, its causes, cures or treatment, or activities that support either legislatively or fiscally cancer research, treatment, prevention or care. Anderson received the award for his commitment to women throughout the world and his efforts to improve their quality of care. He has devoted his clinical practice to the care of patients with breast cancer and breast health issues.

Anderson was formally presented the award June 6 during the ASCO annual meeting in Chicago.

For the past decade, Anderson has been a leading voice in the international breast cancer clinical improvement and best practices movement through the establishment of the Hutchinson Center-based Breast Health Global Initiative (BHGI), a global alliance of organizations and individuals dedicated to improving health outcomes of medically underserved women. Co-sponsored by the Hutchinson Center and Susan G. Komen for the Cure, BHGI has pioneered development of comprehensive resource-sensitive, evidence-based clinical guidelines to improve breast cancer outcomes in low- and middle-resource countries.

"A multi-disciplinary approach to breast cancer early detection, diagnosis and treatment works through clinical, evidence-based guidelines, but in the United States, we begin with the assumption that we have all the tools," said Anderson. "In low- and middle-resource countries and other regions worldwide where women are medically underserved, our guidelines fundamentally do not apply."
