The FDA Oncology Center of Excellence (OCE) is excited to present a Conversations on Cancer focusing on the future leaders in oncology, titled “Cancer Moonshot in Action: Launching the Next Generation of Cancer Leaders”.
The FDA Oncology Center of Excellence (OCE) Summer Scholars Program was established in 2017 and is designed to introduce high school students with an interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, or mathematics) to the cancer drug development process and career opportunities in government, regulatory medicine, and cancer advocacy. The program aims to give high school students from underrepresented and underserved communities insight to oncology drug development and provides mentorship and career guidance.
For this Conversations on Cancer discussion, the OCE is inviting former and current OCE Summer Scholars, a patient advocate, a counselor from a Maryland public school, and the National Summer Learning Association to discuss FDA-OCE Summer Scholars and other STEM opportunities.
This public panel discussion is designed to bring greater awareness on cancer, emphasizing the importance of education, mentorship, career opportunities, and how we can continue to advance the field of cancer by engaging the next generation of oncology leaders.
