Patient Advocates for Psychosocial Care

2020 brings us much more than a new decade. A new era of human-centered cancer care is coming. Help us define it.

The 17th American Psychosocial Oncology Society (APOS) Annual Conference will bring together a large group of psychosocial oncology researchers, practitioners, advocates, and policy makers striving to contribute to high-value, human-centered cancer care delivery. The voice of the patient, survivor and caregiver is imperative to what we do. Please join us as an inaugural member of our Patient Advocates for Psychosocial Care program at APOS!
