Patient Advocates at AACR Meetings

The AACR organizes a variety of outstanding conferences, meetings, and workshops each year to advance our understanding of cancer and to facilitate the exchange of the most cutting-edge research in the field. To promote patient advocate attendance, the AACR offers discounted registration rates at all of our conferences.

We also offer special patient advocacy programs at the AACR Annual Meeting, the AACR Conference on The Science of Cancer Health Disparities in Racial/Ethnic Minorities and the Medically Underserved, and a Special Education Session at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium.

Patient Advocate Registration Rates

To be eligible for the reduced patient advocates rate, individuals must meet the following criteria:

  • Work or volunteer for a nonprofit patient advocacy organization.
  • Be actively involved in programs, activities, or services that support cancer patients.
  • Do not have an AACR Active or Associate Membership.

To receive the reduced rate, patient advocates must download and complete the conference’s official registration form and the advocate verification form. Please submit both forms to [email protected] for approval. Patient advocates must register in advance. Please note that there is no onsite approval for patient advocates.
