First Anniversary of New War on Cancer Marks Many Advances
Date:7/21/2009

>During the 2008 Presidential election campaign, President Barack Obama announced a plan to double the funding for cancer research by 2017. The plan is currently on track to reach that goal as funding in the proposed 2010 budget for the National Institutes of Health included $6 billion for cancer research, an approximately 15 percent increase over 2009.

  • The George Washington University (GW) Medical Center, with support from Pfizer and the Pfizer Foundation, announced the launch of The Center for the Advancement of Cancer Survivorship, Navigation, and Policy with a $1.2 million commitment over three years. The new Center, launched in April 2009, is a unique collaboration of the GW Cancer Institute (GWCI) and the GW Department of Health Policy in the School of Public Health and Health Services. It seeks to advance patient navigation and cancer survivorship efforts both locally and nationally through training, research, policy analysis, outreach, and education.
  • The Lance Armstrong Foundation and Penn Medicine announced in May 2009 a four-year partnership to further develop and disseminate the LIVESTRONG Care Plan Powered by Penn Medicine's OncoLink. This free service gives adult cancer survivors, their families, and physicians the ability to create an individualized plan of care using up-to-date treatment information based on Institute of Medicine recommendati
