He directs the Breast Health Clinic at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA). From 2005-2007, Dr. Anderson served as President of the American Society of Breast Disease (ASBD). Dr. Anderson created and chairs the Breast Health Global Initiative (BHGI), which developed resource-stratified guidelines for breast cancer early detection, diagnosis and treatment in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). On the U.S. delegation to the 58th World Health Assembly in Geneva, Dr. Anderson contributed to the 2005 World Health Organization (WHO) Cancer Prevention and Control Resolution. The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) awarded Dr. Anderson their 2011 Partners in Progress Award. In 2012, Dr. Anderson was elected to the Board of Directors of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), the oldest international professional organization addressing global cancer control. Dr. Anderson now chairs the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) International Program Committee. Most recently, the National Consortium of Breast Centers (NCBC) awarded him their 2013 Inspiration Award, recognizing his dedication and efforts to improve quality and effectiveness of breast cancer care around the globe.
