DALLAS (AP) — A Dallas doctor who survived cancer will serve as national president of the American Cancer Society.

Ceremonies were planned Thursday in Atlanta to induct Dr. W. Phil Evans, who’ll serve a one-year term.

Evans, who 15 years ago underwent kidney surgery for cancer, is director of the University of Texas Southwestern Center for Breast Care. He’s also a professor of radiology at UT Southwestern Medical Center.
