Entirely free & online Community Oncology Advocacy Summit
Augusta Oncology would like to invite cancer advocates, patients, survivors, caregivers and practicing health care professionals to the Virtual Community Oncology Advocacy Summit on July 15, 2020. Throughout the full day of the Virtual COA Summit you will hear from national experts in community oncology who have taken on the challenges of COVID-19. The coronavirus has disrupted every aspect of cancer care from diagnosis to treatment and beyond, but cancer hasn’t slowed down yet, and neither have the community oncology practices.
Effective advocacy begins with education, and the Virtual COA Summit will provide a comprehensive look at the issues impacting cancer in the present and in the future.
This live event will take place on Wed., July 15, 2020 from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. E.T.

Augusta Oncology is proud to actively be involved in the Community Oncology Alliance and encourage the active participation of our patients as well. This non-profit organization advocates for community-based oncology practices and most importantly, the patients they serve. The COA is the only organization dedicated solely to community oncology where the majority of Americans with cancer are treated.
The mission of COA is to ensure that cancer patients receive quality, affordable, and accessible cancer care in their own communities. More than 1.5 million people in the U.S. are diagnosed with cancer each year and deaths from the disease have been steadily declining due to earlier detection, diagnosis and treatment. Cancer treatment can be intense and span many years requiring regular physician visits for chemotherapy and checkups. Keeping patients close to their homes, families and support networks lessens the burden of this devastating disease. With the majority of Americans battling cancer receiving treatment in the community setting, it is imperative that the vitality of the community cancer care delivery system be preserved.
The Community Oncology Alliance helps advocate for much-needed policy changes with the goal of shaping a future where all Americans have access to quality, affordable cancer care.
Augusta Oncology is proud to offer our patients and anyone interested access to this free Virtual Community Oncology Alliance Advocacy Summit on July 15, 2020.
