The Roger Winn Award

Prize: Honorary award


This award was named to honor Dr. Roger Winn, who was both the “father” of the NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines) and the founding Editor-in-Chief of JNCCN. He was an enthusiastic advocate for patients, fellow health care providers, and NCCN itself, and he continued working to further the mission of improving the lives of patients with cancer, even through his own cancer diagnosis and treatment, until his death in 2007.

To celebrate his life and dedication, each year NCCN gives The Rodger Winn Award to one NCCN Guidelines Panel Member who exemplifies Dr. Winn’s leadership, drive, and commitment to the development of evidence-based guidelines tempered by expert judgment. The recipient provides a voice for the core mission of NCCN, improving the quality of care for patients. Specifically, the award recognizes service in the development of clinical practice guidelines, promotion of collegiality in NCCN activities, commitment to excellence, and dedication to multidisciplinary care.
