    AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY PROGRAM OVERVIEW

    The Gates Millennium Scholars (GMS) Program and the GMS Alumni Association have commenced their first-ever partnership with a non-profit organization. The American Cancer Society has been selected for this collaboration because of the Society’s focus on promoting health equity across diverse and multicultural populations. Coinciding with National Minority Health Awareness Month, the official kickoff featured keynote remarks by Dr. Otis Brawley, chief medical officer for the American Cancer Society. The partnership will run from April 2014 to April 2016. This partnership is designed to empower the vibrant Gates Millennium Scholar population with service opportunities guided by the Society’s professional training and support. Each disstinct opportunity will be targeted at specific sectors of the GMS community to mobilize in the fight against cancer and reduce cancer disparities. As Leaders for America’s Future™, it is our responsibility to do the important work of outreach to our communities in order to promote health equity.

    Drive Patients to Treatment

    In the Road To Recovery® program, volunteers donate their time and the use of their vehicles to drive cancer patients to the lifesaving treatments they need. Lack of transportation is a primary reason some patients don’t complete their treatment regimens. Volunteer drivers remove that obstacle so patients can focus on getting well.

    ACS CAN

    ACS CAN is the nation’s leading cancer advocacy organization that is working every day to make cancer issues a national priority. Many of the most important decisions about cancer are made outside of your doctor’s office. Instead, they are made by your state legislature, in Congress and in the White House. ACS CAN empowers regular people to be part of the growing national movement that is fighting back against cancer.
