Patient Advocacy

CPANCommunity Oncology Patient Advocacy Network was created in recognition of the vital role patients should play in advocating for access to local affordable, quality care for all cancer patients. CPAN members include patients in active treatment, cancer survivors, professional caregivers, family members, medical and oncology professionals, and members of the general community.

Our local chapter was launched in 2016. New members are welcome and can get additional information from our CPAN Advocacy Leader at rgilbert@hoacny.com  or via the national website http://cpan.communityoncology.org.   Local CPAN members have attended the Community Oncology Alliance conference in Washington DC. They spent time on Capitol Hill speaking with Senators and Representatives about their cancer stories and lobby for issues/bills that impact their care. Syracuse Locals Advocates
