OCS Director’s Series

The Office of Cancer Survivorship (OCS) established the OCS Director’s Series in 2021 as part of the commemoration of the office’s 25th anniversary. Today, these webinars serve as an avenue for promoting a better understanding of the unique needs of the growing population of cancer survivors. Each webinar focuses on research that examines and addresses the long- and short-term physical, psychological, social, and economic effects of cancer and its treatment among pediatric and adult survivors of cancer and their families.
