Dr. Gladys Rodriguez Named Advocacy Champion by the Association for Clinical Oncology
The Association for Clinical Oncology (ASCO) named Dr. Gladys Rodriguez as an Advocacy Champion during the 2020 Advocacy Summit in September. Advocacy Champions are ASCO volunteers who have made meaningful contributions to ASCO’s advocacy activities throughout the year to ensure that every patient with cancer has access to high-quality, equitable cancer care, no matter who they are or where they live. Advocates speak with federal lawmakers and agencies, send personalized letters to Members of Congress through ASCO’s ACT Network, engage with state lawmakers on policy priorities at the state-level, and host site visits for lawmakers in their home states and districts.
