Dr. Christabel Cheung Awarded at World’s Largest Clinical Cancer Research Conference

Assistant Professor Christabel Cheung, PhD, MSW and colleagues won the GRASP Advocate Choice Award at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting for their study of vital best practices for antiracist patient engagement in adolescent and young adult oncology research and advocacy. The ASCO Annual Meeting is the world’s largest clinical cancer research meeting, and Dr. Cheung’s research was selected from over 5,000 submissions. In 2022, ASCO brought together over 40,000 oncology professionals from around the world to discuss state-of-the-art treatment modalities, new therapies, and ongoing controversies in the field. It is the largest convening of oncology professionals.

Findings were presented on June 4, 2022 during the ASCO Annual Meeting in Chicago, and will be presented again on June 10, 2022 in a special virtual convening of patient advocates from across the globe for an in-depth discussion with Dr. Cheung; hosted by GRASP - Guiding Researchers and Advocates to Scientific Partnerships.
