Cancer Prevention and Control
Early this month Cancer Prevention and Control’s Amy Allen participated in an advanced leadership education program exclusively designed to help nonprofit executives generate added financial support. The “New Strategies” Program is open to nonprofit executives sponsored by corporations or foundations that provide grants to cover all program expenses, including the Forum held on the Georgetown campus. Amy’s participation was sponsored by Bristol-Meyers Squibb Foundation in support of Cancer Prevention and Control’s work to address cancer health disparities.
