The American Cancer Society, through its American Cancer Society University (ACSU) program, partnered with the ASCO Cancer Foundation and its International Development and Education Award (IDEA) program to pilot a training course for young oncologists from developing countries about their potential role in cancer control. The ACSU-ASCO pilot training course was held prior to the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) on May 29 in Orlando, Florida. American Cancer Society volunteers Stephen Sener, MD, and Rick Ngo, MD, assisted with the training course. The training sought to engage oncologists in cancer control in their countries and to provide them an opportunity to share ideas and make commitments in cancer control. Participants reviewed and discussed their role with cancer control nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in areas of advocacy, patient services, and prevention/detection, as well as their role with governments in national cancer planning. Prior to the training course, a three-week online session helped participants conduct research on cancer control NGOs and national cancer plans in their countries. Participants will send follow-up reports on their activities to ASCO in the next six to 12 months.
