We appreciate the efforts of Courtney and all of her colleagues at ASCO for keeping our community well-informed and safer. Obviously the viral pandemic is impacting our clinical research and the day to day care of our patients with cancer. As an oncologist, I am forever optimistic. I believe there will be some good that comes through the innovations being used to address this health crisis (telemedicine, remote monitoring, virtual assessments, and many others). Share your best practices and innovations with our community. My best wishes go out to all of you who courageously remain on the front lines in support of our patients. Keep yourself and your families safe.

Just wanted to send a gentle reminder that the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) COVID-19 survey noted on this forum's announcements will be closing May 14th. Please don't feel obligated to complete it, but wanted to flag in case it is of interest.
The survey is open through Thursday, May 14, and may be found here.
This survey is about how COVID-19 has changed cancer care and it is intended for multiple stakeholders - patients, survivors, caregivers, and health care providers. Any insights from stakeholders will be used by this group to inform recommendations and policies. Please feel welcome to share within your networks as well, if feasible – both care providers and patients.
