AACI welcomes the Hematology/Oncology Pharmacist Association (HOPA) to its roster of sustaining members. Founded in 2004, HOPA is a professional society for hematology/oncology pharmacists and associates. The organization’s mission is to support these pharmacy practitioners and optimize the care of individuals affected by cancer. HOPA also promotes the importance of oncology pharmacists to the cancer care team.
Sustaining membership in AACI is open to nonprofit organizations that represent and support the educational and professional development of clinical oncology health professionals and researchers. It is also available to organizations that represent the interests of cancer patients and their families and that are dedicated to improving access to high-quality patient care.
Benefits of sustaining membership include opportunities to: leverage AACI’s resources to educate policymakers on the importance of cancer research funding, collaborate with AACI cancer center members, and contribute to public education and community outreach. They are invited to participate in AACI-sponsored meetings, workshops, and forums, and to meet annually with AACI leadership.
Additional AACI sustaining members are American Association of Cancer Research (AACR), American Cancer Society, American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), and the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC).
