Mark R. Clements Awards

Each year the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation (CCF) honors the significant contributions of community members through the Mark R. Clements Awards. These awards are the highest and most prestigious recognition a community member can receive from CCF. The awards began in 2019 in honor of CCF Co-founder Mark R. Clements, who passed away from the disease in 2007.

Award winners are recognized for their significant contributions through their advocacy, vision, innovation, and collaboration. Winners are selected by CCF staff and leadership and receive *awards at the Foundation’s annual conference.
