The Women Who Conquer Cancer (WWCC) Mentorship Award aims to recognize and promote the work of women mentors who are both leaders in oncology and role models committed to the professional development of women colleagues as clinicians, educators, and researchers in oncology. This year, the award, which is sponsored by the Conquer Cancer Foundation of ASCO, aims to recognize both an international and a U.S.-based recipient.
Nominations for the award are being accepted now until November 30, 2016. Recipients of the WWCC Mentorship Award will be honored at the ASCO Annual Meeting, June 2-6, 2017, in Chicago.
