Help improve cancer clinical trials – the source of all new cancer treatments – by sharing perspectives from your unique community.
SWOG Cancer Research Network is part of the oldest and largest publicly funded cancer research network in the United States and is recruiting volunteer community advocates that will bring diverse perspectives to its cancer clinical trials.
- Advanced/Metastatic Cancer
- LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning)
- Rural Residents
Community advocates are valued for their front-line perspective on cancer diagnosis, treatment, and survival issues. For this reason, extensive experience in clinical trial development and cancer research is discouraged. Advocates who have served on clinical trial review panels, on an institutional review board, or in a similar position of cancer research leadership should apply instead for a SWOG research advocate position as they become open.
Application period closes Friday, February 12 at 5pm ET
Thank you for your interest in the SWOG Cancer Research Network’s Community Advocate program. Please complete the application below in its entirety to receive consideration as a SWOG Community Advocate.
