Congratulations to a long-time friend of medicine. Texas State Sen. Jane Nelson (R-Flower Mound) received the National Distinguished Advocacy Award from the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN). That’s ACS CAN’s highest honor. It recognizes her “consistent leadership in legislation to reduce the burden of cancer,” including the bill that created the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas and the constitutional amendment that authorized a $3 billion investment to fund it. Senator Nelson also is receiving the ACS’s highest state advocacy recognition, the True Grit Award, for her work on the institute.
