Stories from the Childhood Cancer Data Initiative Community

The Childhood Cancer Data Initiative (CCDI) community is made of a diverse group of children, adolescents, and young adults (AYAs), families, pediatric oncologists, researchers, data scientists, and many others. Each of these individuals shares a commitment to making faster progress in childhood cancer and a belief that harnessing the power of data can be a driver of that progress.
