Rob Winn: Honored to receive the ASCO Allen Lichter Visionary Leader Award

Rob Winn shared VCU Massey Comprehensive Cancer Center’s post on LinkedIn, adding:             .

“I was honored to receive the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Allen Lichter Visionary Leader Award for my health equity work.

The latest discoveries mean very little when only a few people have access to them. Disparities are created when what’s happening in the lab is not translated into what’s happening in communities and how we can best reach the individuals living in them.”

Quoting VCU Massey Comprehensive Cancer Center’s post:

ASCO24 brought together more than 40,000 attendees both in person and online, and is labeled as ‘the most significant gathering of oncology professionals worldwide’.VCU Massey leads the way with cutting-edge research.

Check out the recap.”
