Amplity Health Designated “Trusted Partner” of Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation

Web Exclusives — February 3, 2021

February 1, 2021 (Cranbury, NJ): The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation (CCF) designated Amplity Health as a “Trusted Partner,” 1 of only 4 organizations globally. A CCF “Trusted Partner” shares the CCF mission: to find a cure and improve the quality of life for those affected by cholangiocarcinoma (CCA). These 4 esteemed partners are fundamental to the Foundation’s growth and ability to provide high-quality programs and services to the CCA community.

Amplity Health’s designation is based on one of CCF’s core values: the patient is first in everything we do. As a global strategic medical communications and education company, Amplity Health strives to develop and deliver contemporary educational information for all stakeholders in the healthcare ecosystem. Working together with CCF on the Cholangiocarcinoma Summit, CCA News, and Conquering Cholangiocarcinoma has allowed both organizations to achieve their shared goal of improving the lives of CCA patients and caregivers. This specific partnership has significantly increased the impact of educational outreach and built relationships with key stakeholders within the CCA ecosystem. This is important because the speed at which the science of CCA is moving, immediate and broad dissemination of information is crucial to the care of the patient.

“Partnerships are at the heart of the way we work. The relationships we build with our partners allow us to leverage resources, extend our reach in all aspects, and widen our work’s impact. It is important for us to know that our partners have shared values, among other important factors. We are very grateful for the excellent work our partners have helped accomplish for this community,” said Stacie Lindsey, CCF Founder and CEO.

“It is a sincere honor to be recognized as a trusted partner of the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation,” said Nick Englezos, Publisher of CCA News and CONQUER magazine. “CCF’s contribution to CCA News and CONQUER: the patient voice has added tremendous value for healthcare providers, patients, caregivers, and family members of those with cholangiocarcinoma. As a Steering Committee member of the CCA Summit, CCF has been instrumental in identifying faculty and topics for the Summit, which has elevated our ability to impact the CCA community.”

About Cholangiocarcinoma

Cholangiocarcinoma, a highly lethal rare cancer with poor prognosis, arises from the bile ducts in the liver. With approximately 10,000 cases a year being diagnosed in the United States, cholangiocarcinoma is the second most common primary liver cancer in the world. It is often diagnosed at advanced stages when treatment is only minimally effective, emphasizing the imminent need for novel therapies.
