COA is a non-profit organization dedicated solely to community oncology. COA was founded by community oncology to advocate for patients and providers in the community oncology setting, where the majority of Americans with cancer are treated. In its ten years of existence, COA has mobilized community oncology to become more politically active, and increased awareness on Capitol Hill about the community cancer care delivery system.
Community Counts is a physician-led movement focused on showing the real, measurable value of community oncology. We’re joined by nurses, payers, patients and their loved ones as we work to ensure the success of community oncology, now and in the future.
