Stephenson Cancer Center – Hope is at the Center

The NCI-designated Stephenson Cancer Center at the University of Oklahoma is Oklahoma’s only comprehensive academic cancer center. As a nationally recognized leader in research and patient care, Oklahomans no longer need to travel out of state to receive state-of-the-art clinical care. The experts at the Stephenson Cancer Center are exploring new treatments and breakthroughs with advanced research and clinical trials right here at home. The Stephenson Cancer Center cancer care teams focus on treating people, not patients. The Stephenson Cancer Center annually ranks among the top five cancer centers in the nation for patients participating in National Cancer Institute-sponsored clinical trials, and it is one of 30 designated lead centers nationally in the NCI’s National Clinical Trials Network.

The conference will be held at the historical Skirvin Hilton Hotel, in downtown Oklahoma City. Built in 1911, the iconic landmark was recently recognized as the best Hilton hotel across all of the brand’s locations. Learn more about this property.

Host a Future Conference

Ready to showcase your Cancer Center and hometown/city to your peers from across the nation? The National Association of Cancer Center Development Officers (NACCDO) and the Public Affairs and Marketing Network of National Cancer Centers (PAMN) is now accepting bids to host our 2022 annual meeting.


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.
