Children's Healthcare of Atlanta
The Aflac Cancer Center and Blood Disorders Service of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta treats more
than 350 new cancer patients each year. It is recognized as one of the top childhood cancer centers
in the country by U.S.News & World Report.
Through the Aflac Cancer Center, patients have access to more than 125 open therapeutic and nontherapeutic
clinical trials. The center's 30-member Clinical Research Office team conducts leading-edge research in
conjunction with numerous national and local groups. Specifically, the Aflac Cancer Center team concentrates
its cancer research in four areas: solid tumors, leukemia and lymphomas, brain tumors and stem cell
transplantation. Each area has a dedicated team with specific expertise, interest and focus to care for
children and young adults.
All of this has been made possible by the generosity and commitment of Aflac Inc., which, along with its
Field Force, has contributed more than $60 million to the Aflac Cancer Center since 1995 — making the company
the largest corporate supporter of Children's.
Physicians and researchers at the Aflac Cancer Center are faculty members at Emory University School of
Medicine. The Aflac Cancer Center is part of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, which manages more than
half a million patient visits annually at three hospitals and 16 neighborhood locations and is one of
the largest clinical care providers for children in the country. The not-for-profit healthcare system
is ranked among the country's top children's hospitals by both Parents magazine and U.S.News & World Report.
