Pharmacy Times®, the leading multimedia resource for pharmacy professionals, expands its Strategic Alliance Partnership (SAP) program with the addition of Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center.

“With an extensive, impactful history, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center set the national standard for cancer care, research and education,” said Gil Hernandez, vice president of Pharmacy & Healthcare Communications, LLC, publisher of Pharmacy Times®. “Through this collective partnership, we look forward to making collaborative contributions intended to reduce cancer burdens for patients.”

Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, America's first cancer center, was founded in 1898 by Dr. Roswell Park. Roswell Park is the only upstate New York facility to hold the National Cancer Institute designation of "comprehensive cancer center"​ and to serve as a member of the prestigious National Comprehensive Cancer Network. Over its long history, Roswell Park has made fundamental contributions to reducing the cancer burden and has successfully maintained an exemplary leadership role in setting the national standards for cancer care, research and education.

“With new approvals and constant streams of novel investigative therapies coming through more rapidly than ever, it’s critically important for the pharmacy community to embrace these developments and innovations quickly and effectively,” said Lijian “Leo” Cai, Pharm.D., chief pharmacy officer of Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. “We’re pleased to share insights from Roswell Park’s practice and research, and to help start these key conversations through our contributions to Pharmacy Times®.”

The Pharmacy Times® SAP program is a community of advocacy groups and medical associations and institutions that foster collaboration and open exchange of information among trusted peers for the benefit of patients and their families. As part of this joint effort, Pharmacy Times® will work with the Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center to inform and educate practicing pharmacists in Directions in Oncology Pharmacy™ and Directions in Health Systems™ publications.
