Director of Survivorship Policy, National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship
Mark Gorman joined the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS) as a part-time volunteer in late 2000, following two years of treatment and recovery for metastatic melanoma. In mid-2001 he transitioned to a part-time staff position and eventually into a full-time position on the staff. During his time at NCCS he has managed membership and donor records, directed online advocacy activities, and since mid-2007 has held his current position as Director of Survivorship Policy. In this position he brings his personal experience as a cancer survivor and his professional training in law in support of NCCS’s mission of advocating for quality cancer care for all Americans.
Gorman’s prior experience include work as a civil legal services attorney in rural southeast Georgia, at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, the National Legal Aid & Defender Association and the Takoma Park-Silver Spring Food Coop.
