GRACE is pleased to announce the acceptance of two rising stars in to the inaugural GRACE Fellows Ambassador Program for the 2019-2020 Program Year!


Both candidates have shown a genuine passion for patient education and innovation in connecting with the patient community.  The program will encompass the participants creating content which will be featured on the GRACE website, working alongside GRACE faculty, Board and staff, and learning the most current and effective communication skills needed to succeed in their field. The Fellows Ambassador Program starts July 1, 2019 and ends on June 30, 2020.

We are excited to work with both of them over the next year to continue to educate cancer patients on the most current and emerging treatment options. Watch for new videos, articles, and podcasts featuring the passions that these two amazing fellows have to share with the community!
