An Opportunity for Outreach
Providing high-quality information to the public is an important part of OCCAM’s mission. One way in which OCCAM participates in outreach is by presenting at various meetings attended by members of the public. In support of this type of activity, OCCAM Director Dr. Jeffrey D. White spoke this past July at the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance’s 10th Annual Conference in Washington, D.C. Dr. White’s talk “Approaches to Uncovering and Studying Unconventional Cancer Therapies: The U.S. National Cancer Institute Experience” demonstrated to the attendees the many projects and activities that NCI has completed and has underway, which increase the available amount of evidence-based information on cancer CAM therapies.
