It is with great sadness that we tell you of the passing of Patrick "Pat" Gavin, RPh, who died on December 18th after a brief and sudden illness. Pat was the Chair of the CRCWM Patient Advisory Committee and a member of the CRCWM Executive Board. Pat’s passion for the CRCWM mission exemplified the fact that we have “Real Answers, Real Options, Real Miracles….right here in West Michigan,” a vision statement that he helped develop and share with others.


The NCI Cancer Prevention Steering Committee (CPSC) was established on May 25, 2017. The CPSC addresses the design, prioritization and evaluation of concepts for clinical trials to prevent cancer. The CPSC will review innovative cancer prevention, screening and surveillance concepts (i.e., phase 2 and phase 3 randomized trials) across a broad range of cancer and precancerous conditions in diverse patient populations that are seen within the NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP).  Congratulations Marty Smith!
