About Ostrich

Our Mission

The Consortium for Optimizing the Treatment of Rectal Cancer (OSTRiCh) is a diverse group of healthcare institutions dedicated to improving the quality of rectal cancer care in the U.S. through advocacy, education, and research.

One of the underlying principles of OSTRiCh is a spirit of inclusion rather than exclusion, as the ultimate goal is to provide access to high quality rectal cancer care for all Americans, not just those living in proximity to existing expert centers.
