The American Cancer Society Launches Two New National Cancer Roundtables

The American Cancer Society launched the ACS National Breast Cancer Roundtable and the ACS National Roundtable on Cervical Cancer in an event at the White House with First Lady Dr. Jill Biden on Monday, October 24th, joining the NCCRT, the National Lung Cancer Roundtable, and the National Navigation Roundtable as the latest additions to ACS’s mission-critical national roundtables.

The new roundtables are in response to President Biden’s relaunch of Cancer Moonshot, which aims to cut the death rate from cancer by at least 50 percent over the next 25 years and improve the experience of people and their families living with and surviving cancer.

The ACS-led roundtables provide the nation with an effective and proven model to catalyze change and investment across the cancer continuum by utilizing an ‘all-hands-on-deck’ approach. In bringing together scientists, the medical community, leading public health agencies, the private sector and community organizations, the President’s goal can be achieved by accelerating our efforts to improve cancer outcomes.

The roundtables align with the President’s Cancer Panel Report – Closing Gaps in Cancer Screening: Connecting People, Communities, and Systems to Improve Equity and Access. Additionally, the roundtables are consistent with the ACS National Consortium for Cancer Screening and Care recommendations to accelerate the adoption of evidence-based cancer screening intervention and policies through coordinated efforts from roundtables and coalitions.

View and share the ACS press release.

If your cancer-related interests go beyond colorectal cancer, we encourage you to visit the new roundtable websites and follow them on social media.
