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

h medicine, founded BHGI in 2002 in an effort to address the lack of appropriate global breast health guidelines. BHGI's work involves evaluating existing resources and engaging advocates as well as clinicians to implement changes in beliefs and practices. Over nearly a decade, through its global alliance of organizations, BHGI held four global summits to create and publish resource-adapted guidelines, and to investigate how these guidelines might be applied in practice. In the process, BHGI created an international, interactive hub for linkages and alliances, providing a common network for clinicians and governmental health care agencies, advocacy and non-governmental organizations, non-profit and for-profit organizations, public health researchers and other key groups to work together to advance systematic change.

Anderson says that patient advocates are critical to improving cancer outcomes.

"There is an essential relationship between the medical community and the advocacy community," he said. "On the medical side, you want to find the disease as early as possible with the resources you have and give stage-appropriate multidisciplinary treatment. This only works if the women participate. Once you begin having survivors, those survivors are able to communicate with other women about why they should participate in ways that the medical community cannot. Ultimately, it's the advocates that create awareness and awareness makes this go forward."

Anderson said he is deeply honored is to receive the Partners in Progress award and views it as a statement of responsibility to ensure that through on-going international collaborations with organizations, such as ASCO, and with individuals, that his global work meets the needs of all women who are medically underserved.
