On Saturday, after the Spirit of Survival Training session, runners, walkers and supporters found a way to beat the heat by holding a group Ice Water Challenge to benefit the Cancer Centers of Southwest Oklahoma (CCSO).
Cancer Centers Partners with Research Group Based at Mayo Clinic
The Cancer Centers of Southwest Oklahoma (CCSO) was recently accepted as a member of the Academic and Community Cancer Research United (ACCRU). This association will greatly expand the number of clinical trials available to our physicians and patients. ACCRU is a cancer clinical research group based at the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated cancer center.
“This marriage between highly acclaimed academic centers and community cancer programs is rather innovative and is intended to increase the number of patients enrolled in clinical trials at the local level in communities across the United States," said Dr. Nadim Nimeh, Principal Investigator of CCSO.
