About Us

The American Cancer Society National Navigation Roundtable (ACS NNRT) serves as a catalyst to initiate work on key issues around patient navigation, as well as to disseminate best practices and to overall enhance the field of navigation.

A fundamental premise of the Roundtable is that collective action among member organizations will be more successful in advancing the field, than if they worked alone. Together, members work to share information, identify needs and opportunities, while addressing gaps relating to navigation.

The American Cancer Society National Navigation Roundtable was established in 2017.  The ACS NNRT is a national coalition of 200+ member organizations to advance navigation efforts that eliminate barriers to quality care, reduce disparities, and foster ongoing health equity across the cancer continuum. The American Cancer Society provides organizational leadership and expert staff support to the ACS NNRT.

Our members include partners from diverse sectors including academia, public health, advocacy and survivor groups, professional societies, industry, training, and state and federal agencies.
