Patient Advisory Panel

The Hematology/Oncology Pharmacy Association (HOPA) is dedicated to supporting oncology pharmacists and optimizing patient care. We see the impact of cancer and blood diseases on patients and their loved ones every day.

That's why our Patient Outreach and Education Committee (POEC) created the Patient Advisory Panel to give a voice to those being directly impacted by their cancer or blood disease and associated treatment.

Advisory Panel Members

HOPA’s Patient Outreach and Education Committee is pleased to introduce the 2023-2024 HOPA Patient Advisory Panel. The Panel gives patients, caregivers, and survivors who have been impacted by cancer or blood diseases an opportunity to share their perspectives. Their perspectives may influence HOPA’s programming, initiatives, policies, and publications , ensuring these resources meet the needs of their primary audiences and provide a patient and caregiver perspective.
