Beth Karlan, MD, Named Fellow of ASCO

Beth Karlan, MD

The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) has named Beth Karlan, MD, director of the Women’s Cancer Program in the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute and the Division of Gynecologic Oncology, a fellow of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, or FASCO.

The honor was awarded to Karlan in recognition of her dedication to volunteer efforts that benefit ASCO, the specialty of oncology and the patients ASCO serves. The distinction is reserved for ASCO’s most active volunteer members and encourages more members to become involved in volunteer activities.

“I am thrilled to be named a fellow of the American Society of Clinical Oncology,” said Karlan, professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, who received the honor during the organization’s annual meeting in Chicago on June 2. “As a gynecologic oncologist, the FASCO distinction is especially meaningful as I work tirelessly with the ASCO community to highlight the needs of women with cancer.”

ASCO members are eligible to become a fellow if they have accumulated 100 or more points for volunteer service to ASCO and its philanthropic affiliate, the Conquer Cancer Foundation. Eligibility is limited to active members of the society.
