Leveraging their personal experiences, they work tirelessly to raise awareness about the value of proton therapy and passionately support increasing patient access to this life-changing treatment.
The Patient Care Award pays tribute to those who go above and beyond to support patients and their families throughout their proton therapy journey. Whether they are Radiation Therapists, Nurses, Patient Navigators, Social Workers, Insurance Specialists, or other dedicated professionals, their commitment to patient care and support is unwavering.
The prestigious Champion Award is reserved for public officials who actively advocate for improved patient access to proton therapy. Through legislative, policy, and regulatory achievements, these leaders have demonstrated their unwavering commitment to advancing the field and galvanizing support from others.
