Christian G. Downs, JD, MHA, executive director of the Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC), discusses the upcoming 34th National Oncology Conference, taking place October 18 to 20, 2017 in Nashville, Tennessee.

The conference is one of 2 large meetings held by ACCC throughout the year, Downs explains. One of the highlights of the meeting is the Innovator Awards, where the committee reviews programs across the country who have done something innovative in delivering care to patients. These include, but are not limited to, designed transportation programs, financial advocacy, and molecular testing.

These include a wide variety of different practices and programs, which will likely be applicable to more than one practice, he adds.
