InTouch magazine, the Good Health Guide to Cancer Prevention and Treatment, has joined forces with the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO). Beginning with the May 2002 issue of InTouch, ASCO will contribute a regular page to the magazine, which is published six times a year.
"InTouch is committed to providing cancer patients and their families with comprehensive information on cancer prevention and treatment options," said Randi Londer Gould, managing editor of InTouch. "Teaming with ASCO adds strength to our efforts and broadens the scope of the resources we provide for our readers."
The new feature combines the oncologist-approved cancer information contained in InTouch with the latest news from ASCO. The debut column will highlight ASCO’s patient information materials and online resources, including their new cancer information website, People Living With Cancer, scheduled to launch in May.
"ASCO is all about taking care of patients," said Larry Norton, MD, ASCO President. "ASCO serves the people who treat people with cancer. This collaboration with InTouch, which shares our commitment to enhancing patient-physician communication, will enable ASCO to reach even more patients with the information they need to make informed decisions about their health care."
