Medical Advisory Committee

The Medical Advisory Committee (MAC) of the Canadian Cancer Survivor Network provides expert advice to the Board and CEO. It is composed of Canadian specialists with an interest in the field of cancer.

Members may come from the various medical specialties of oncology, radiation oncology, psychosocial oncology, physiotherapy, nursing, the social sciences and other appropriate medical or research specialities.
