About Us

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.
