Cancer Patient and Family Advisory Council

The UAB Medicine Cancer Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC) is comprised of volunteers who recently received cancer care at UAB Medicine or whose family member received cancer care. We are a voice for other patients with cancer and their families, and we work together to provide UAB Medicine leaders with valuable feedback and insight regarding the planning, design, and delivery of cancer care. Our council helps identify needs and concerns of patients and their family members, creates dialogue among advisors and executives about systems and processes, and generates new ideas to improve the patient experience for those with cancer.
