Understanding Advocacy in a Community Oncology Setting – How to Support Your Local CPAN Chapter

CPAN chapters are crucial—they serve to channel the passion and gratitude for community-based cancer clinics into meaningful advocacy. By telling others about the importance of cancer care received in one’s own community, CPAN advocates help policymakers and others understand the impact of community oncology.

One of the most effective ways to help your fellow patients become advocates is to host an informational CPAN launch event at a clinic or community center. This event opens the door for interested individuals to ask questions about CPAN and for chapter leadership to present the myriad reasons why they should join. Advocates can get started by working with their local CPAN chapter clinic to help identify potential advocates to extend an invitation and get involved with CPAN.

Learn more about community oncology, the challenges that practices face, and how you can get involved by visiting CPAN’s Education & Resources library.
