ASCO 2022 recently wrapped, and we're still catching up on reviewing all the promising progress that's been made in cancer research, prevention, and treatment throughout the past year – including understanding the impact of treatment access! One notable study that The Hope Foundation was pleased to supportfound that the Affordable Care Act's expansion of Medicaid insurance in 2014 was followed by a significant increase in the proportion of patients enrolling in SWOG trials who were covered by Medicaid.
This and other great research presented at ASCO will be shared through another "Best of SWOG at ASCO" online showcase on Wednesday, June 29. To register, you can follow this link or click on the image above.

Our VA Integration Support Program launched in 2015 and saw great success in helping VA Medical Centers expand veterans' access to cancer clinical trials across twenty-one VAMCs nationwide.
Now, we're announcing a new VA support mechanism through the VA Storefront Support Program. This exciting advancement is a model of membership consisting of several VA Medical Centers coordinated and supported by a central hub site and staff. An awarded Storefront consortium will share an administrative core, organizational and systems expertise, along with participant accrual summed across all its component sites.
