We’d like to take a moment to tip our caps to our friends over at the American Cancer Society, who were recently selected as 2013 Computerworld Honors Laureate in the category of Mobile Access.
The American Cancer Society has one of the coolest mission statements around: The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service.
Towards this end, the Society’s mobile sites have thousands of pages of research, advice and support information for cancer patients and their families, as well as ways to organize giving programs.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the ComputerWorld Honors Program recognizes the use of information technology to promote positive social, economic and educational change.
The mobile access honor specifically acknowledges the innovative application of IT to extend the distribution of digital information, programs and services through mobile devices, enabling reach to the many populations around the world where mobile devices are more common than desktop computers.
The Computerworld Honors Program awards will be presented at the Gala Evening and Awards Ceremony on June 3, 2013 at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C.
