On September 21, 2022, the AACR released the 12th edition of its AACR Cancer Progress Report, an annual report that chronicles how basic, translational, and clinical cancer research, and cancer-related population sciences, primarily supported by federal investments in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI), remain vitally important to improving health and saving lives.
Major broadcast media outlets including ABC News, NBC News, CBS News, and CNN covered the report with online stories. Each of these outlets also discussed the report on their television programs, such as ABC’s Good Morning America, NBC’s TODAY Show, CBS Mornings, and multiple programs on CNN with commentary from Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta. The report was also covered on local news programs and radio stations across the country, in consumer publications such as People magazine, and in cancer trade publications such as HemOnc Today.
