Childhood Cancer Survivorship Award for Excellence
Funded by Northwestern Mutual
Professionals who focus on survivorship have chosen to devote considerable effort to helping pediatric cancer survivors live full and healthy lives. To honor the efforts of these exceptional investigators, Northwestern Mutual is proud to partner with ASPHO in awarding the Northwestern Mutual Award for Excellence in Childhood Cancer Survivorship, which will annually recognize an individual for their outstanding contributions dedicated to this segment of the pediatric hematology/oncology field.
The Northwestern Mutual Award will honor a mid-career (8-15 years post-fellowship) childhood cancer survivorship investigator who has demonstrated his or her commitment to this segment of the field through a growing portfolio of research and project funding, while accelerating in his or her output and gaining prominence. The $10,000 honorarium will help augment the investigator’s current work to enhance the lives of childhood cancer survivors through innovative projects.
ASPHO Awards are open year-round for nomination and application. Applications submitted between September 27, 2022 and September 27, 2023 will be considered for the 2024 awards cycle and presented at the 2024 ASPHO Conference in Seattle, WA.
