About Huntsman Cancer Institute

Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center in the Mountain West. We serve patients from Utah, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, and Wyoming—amounting to 17 percent of the continental U.S. landmass and the largest catchment area of any other cancer center.

More genes for inherited cancers have been discovered at Huntsman Cancer Institute than at any other cancer center. Our scientists are world-renowned for understanding how cancer begins and using that knowledge to develop innovative approaches to treat each patient’s unique disease.

At its core, our work at Huntsman Cancer Institute aims to reduce human suffering. We are dedicated to creating an environment that insists upon access and equity for all communities, including our staff, providers, patients, and their loved ones. Huntsman Cancer Institute was founded by Jon M. and Karen Huntsman.

The NACCDO-PAMN Conference has grown considerably during the past several years, with an average of more than 400 attendees. This conference provides a unique opportunity to host a meeting that is entirely cancer-focused while offering meaningful plenary and breakout sessions. Session topics range from “big picture” cancer research and treatment presentations to breakout sessions focusing on the strategic, tactical and “best practice” aspects of public relations, marketing and development activities. Networking among NACCDO and PAMN attendees, as well as between attendees and conference sponsors/exhibitors, is a tremendous benefit of the conference.

NACCDO-PAMN held its first conference in 1987 at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia. Former host institutions report that the conference generated valuable visibility for their cancer center and greater enthusiasm for outreach activities on the part of their leadership and faculty.
