FORGING PARTNERSHIPS TO ACCELERATE PROGRESS AGAINST CANCER
The AACR Scientist↔Survivor Program is designed to build enduring partnerships among the leaders of the scientific and cancer survivor and patient advocacy communities worldwide. The program exposes advocates to special lay-language lectures, small group discussions and other interactions that provide a solid background in cancer research.

The AACR's Scientist↔Survivor Program takes place at various AACR scientific meetings. The program provides an opportunity for patient advocates to learn about cancer research and to interact with scientists, doctors and other advocates. Advocates join together with scientists, health professionals and other health care leaders to discuss the latest findings in cancer research, foster collaborative interdisciplinary partnerships, and promote progress in new research in cancer health disparities.
Below is a video podcast of patient advocate Timothy Buckland, a past participant in the Scientist↔Survivor Program, who discusses his cancer diagnosis as a young man. Watch more podcasts on the AACR YouTube channel.
