In a remarkable week of award announcements, the Cancer Support Community received multiple accolades.  MyLifeLine, its digital platform, and our publications, social media, and radio show were recognized for their outstanding quality.

The eHealthcare Leadership Awards honored CSC’s MyLifeLine with a Gold Award in the best interactive category.  The Leadership Awards recognize the very best websites, digital communications, and business improvement initiatives of a wide range of healthcare organizations.

We also earned an astounding 13 Digital Health Awards from the Health Information Resource Center (HIRC). The Digital Health Awards are held twice each year and are organized by HIRC, a national clearinghouse for professionals who work in consumer health fields.

CSC once again surpassed its previous success, improving on its 12 Digital Health Awards presented in Spring 2019. CSC’s social media platforms and special educational video were recognized for the first time with Gold and Silver Awards. The Frankly Speaking About Cancer education resources continue to collect accolades, taking home two Gold Awards (all of these resources are available for free).  Both our radio show and blogs continue to impress judges who bestowed multiple awards in these categories.
