The American Cancer Society hosted its inaugural Celebration of Cancer Care Champions (#SDC4) on Sunday, September 22, at the University of San Diego’s Peace and Justice Theatre. The event brought together the San Diego cancer care community to honor individuals and institutions who were nominated by their patients or peers for excellence in cancer care in 2018–2019. All of the finalists were selected by an external review committee representing 10 of San Diego’s leading health care and research institutions.
Kay Coleman, chair of the ACS Desert Coastal Area Board and the "SDC4" event, said, "There are many celebrations for cancer survivors, but this is the first one for the cancer care professionals who make a difference in the lives of cancer patients every day."
