Alabama Cancer Congress

Welcome

Within several years of establishment, the Alabama Cancer Congress has become the leading representative body of providers for cancer medicine in the state of Alabama. The continued commitment of promoting education, advocacy, and a sense of community for professional medical cancer organizations, has led us to be recognized by the Legislature within the State.

Our website provides information regarding statewide oncologic organizations, links to oncology resources, and recent meeting presentations. Each member of the Alabama Cancer Congress executive board encourages feedback and collaboration from our members. In this dynamic healthcare environment we must continue to provide excellent patient care while supporting the interests of cancer medicine providers in Alabama.

Our main mission is to serve as a sustainable inclusive representative body of all providers of cancer medicine in the state of Alabama – promoting education, advocacy and sense of community.

Membership

ACC corporate membership provides businesses with the opportunity to align themselves with medical, radiation, gynecologic and neurological oncology practices throughout Alabama. Advertisers are able to reach the oncologists and practice decision makers via advertising in society newsletters, websites, and at business, educational and legislative conferences.
