Nebraska Cancer Specialists, Dr Ralph Hauke Named Advocacy Champion by the American Society of Clinical Oncology
ALEXANDRIA, Va – The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) named Dr. Ralph Hauke as an Advocacy Champion during the society’s 2017 Advocacy Summit on Capitol Hill in September. Advocacy Champions are ASCO volunteers who have been exceptionally active in ASCO’s advocacy activities throughout the year. Advocates meet with federal lawmakers and agencies, send personalized letters to members of Congress through ASCO’s ACT Network, engage with state lawmakers on policy priorities at the state-level, and hold site visits during congressional recesses.
“ASCO applauds this year’s Advocacy Champions for their work in educating Congress on the realities and challenges of providing cancer care,” said ASCO Government Relations Committee Chair Robin Zon, MD, FASCO, FACP. “With the continued efforts of these dedicated volunteers, we will continue to push for policies that ensure high-quality, high-value cancer care for the more than 1.6 million Americans diagnosed with cancer each year.”
