The Coleman Vision and the ICEC Mission

Building for the future

The International Cancer Expert Corps envisions a world in which everyone has access to intervention that prevents and treats cancer and its symptoms, using best practices for providing high-quality cancer care.

Recognized worldwide for his numerous scientific achievements and leadership roles, Dr. Coleman also was devoted to addressing health disparities to improve the quality of cancer care globally. These efforts led to Dr. Coleman’s founding in 2013 of the International Cancer Expert Corps (ICEC), a nonprofit organization that mentors cancer professionals in low- and middle-income countries and in regions with indigenous populations in upper-income countries. Norm, known for his lifelong commitment to mentoring physicians and physician-scientists through their careers, has engaged many of his mentees rewardingly in ICEC’s activities.

One of Norm’s final acts was to give an additional $100,000 donation to ICEC in hopes of continuing to build the network of cancer professionals to deliver cancer care to people in underserved communities around the world.  Contributions to ICEC are encouraged and may be made online below or by completing and mailing a downloadable donation form to the International Cancer Expert Corps.
