Advising the NCI Director from the Consumer Advocate Perspective. Increasing Consumer Involvement in NCI.
Welcome to the DCLG

The NCI Director’s Consumer Liaison Group is a Federal Advisory Committee of 16 consumer advocates who advise the NCI Director from the viewpoint of the cancer patient. The NCI Director has asked the DCLG to focus their recommendations on the areas of minority outreach and patient accrual, cancer care delivery, and eliminating health disparities.  Attend a DCLG meeting to see how the DCLG is involved in these areas!
"I had an important message for summit attendees: They are our voice when it matters most. Advocates are the strong voice of cancer patients here at NCI and in all government forums - and the need for that voice is as great now as it has ever been."

NCI Director Dr. John Niederhuber
