Astellas Oncology is committed to cancer patients and caregivers as they meet the challenges of living with the disease. We seek to better understand their unique needs and to reduce the burden of care through evidence-based treatments and educational and support programs.
Astellas Oncology hosts educational events in local communities. At "Ask the Experts: Prostate Cancer in the United States" events, local physicians and patient advocates provide an overview of the disease, disparities and risk factors, and ways healthcare professionals, advocacy groups and others can work together to help make a difference for patients and their loved ones.
The Astellas Oncology C3 Prize is a challenge designed to inspire novel, non-treatment and non-medicine based innovations that improve the cancer care experience for patients, caregivers and loved ones.
The C3 Prize is back with a new challenge launching in 2017; stay tuned to www.C3Prize.com to learn more.
