AACI members are invited to submit nominations for the 2024 Cancer Health Equity and Champion for Cures awards. The submission deadline for both awards is Monday, April 1. Any faculty and staff at an AACI member institution may submit a nomination for either award; recipients will be selected from the slate of nominees by AACI's Board of Directors.

Established by AACI in 2021, the Cancer Health Equity Award recognizes an individual or group who demonstrates exceptional leadership in promoting health equity, mitigating cancer disparities, and advocating for diversity and inclusion at their cancer center.

AACI established the Champion for Cures Award in 2018 to recognize an individual or individuals who, through direct financial support of an AACI cancer center, demonstrate exceptional leadership in advancing cancer research and care and in inspiring others to do the same. Through their transformational philanthropy, the cancer center can focus beyond immediate needs to foster creativity and innovation and multiply its impact on patient health, research, and its surrounding community.

The Cancer Health Equity and Champion for Cures awards will be presented during the 2024 AACI/CCAF Annual Meeting, October 20-22, at the Loews Chicago Hotel. Please contact AACI Development Coordinator Shelly Pocratsky with any questions about the 2024 award cycle and to submit completed nomination forms.
