AACI Update

About the Update

News from North America's Leading Cancer Centers

For over a decade, the AACI Update newsletter has enjoyed steady growth in readership, published news items, and the number of cancer centers submitting stories. More than 2,200 readers—including policymakers and key contacts at AACI's 98 member cancer centers—receive the AACI Update by email.

Many thanks to everyone who has made the publication a success, especially the communications professionals who consistently provide AACI with compelling stories. To maintain our high standards of quality, AACI has established some general content guidelines.

Submission Guidelines
  • AACI must limit the number of stories in each issues to two (2) per member. If a cancer center submits more than two stories for a given issue, AACI communications staff reserve the right to select stories for publication.
  • AACI Update is aimed at a national readership. Please do not submit stories with a local or regional focus, including fundraisers and promotional events.
  • Email stories to aaciupdate@aaci-cancer.org. Please include a link to a press release or online news story with your submission. If a relevant photo is available, we encourage you to submit a high-res JPEG as well.
  • The deadline for submission is three (3) business days before the first of the month. Stories submitted after this deadline will be considered for publication in the following issue.
