This three-day event convenes AACI cancer center directors and executive-level administrators with leaders of national cancer research and advocacy groups, industry, and government health agencies to develop solutions to common challenges at cancer centers and to share best practices. The 2019 AACI/CCAF Annual Meeting will be held at The Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC.
The Jon M. and Karen Huntsman family will receive AACI's 2019 Champion for Cures Award, in recognition of their significant leadership in supporting efforts to cure cancer and in inspiring others to do the same. The Huntsman family’s first major gift to cancer research came in 1993 at $10 million, followed by a $100 million gift in 1995 that formally established and named the Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) at the University of Utah. In all, the family has donated or inspired donations totaling $1.4 billion to cancer.
The Champion for Cures Award will be presented on Monday, October 21, during the AACI/CCAF Annual Meeting.
