ATLANTA, September 14, 2023Dr. Robin Yabroff, scientific vice president, health services research at the American Cancer Society (ACS), was named a Fellow of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (FASCO). The FASCO distinction honors members of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) who have shown extraordinary dedication for their voluntary efforts that benefit the Society, the specialty of oncology, and most importantly, the patients whom they serve.

“I am honored to be recognized by ASCO as a recipient of this special FASCO award,” said Yabroff. “It is a privilege to participate in helping this highly respected international oncology organization improve the health and quality of life for people living with cancer.”

ASCO represents nearly 45,000 oncology professionals who care for people living with cancer. Through research, education, and promotion of the highest-quality patient care, ASCO works to conquer cancer and create a world where cancer is prevented or cured, and every survivor is healthy. It is supported by its affiliate organization, the Conquer Cancer Foundation.

Dr. Yabroff’s ACS research identifies factors at the patient, provider, health system, and policy levels that can be modified to improve access to and receipt of affordable cancer prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, survivorship, and end-of-life care. The underlying goals of this research are to reduce disparities and improve equity in cancer outcomes.

This year’s Fellows of ASCO will be officially recognized at the 2024 Annual Meeting Opening Session on Saturday, June 1, 2024, in Chicago, Illinois.
