Doug Ulman

Survivor. Community Builder. Advocate.

Doug Ulman, is a survivor, a community builder, and an advocate.


Doug understands the battle against cancer from first hand experience; he himself is a three-time survivor. Doug has used this experience to make a positive impact and become a globally recognized cancer advocate.


After overcoming chondrosarcoma during his sophomore year of college and malignant melanoma twice since, Doug and his family founded the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting, educating and connecting young adults, their families and friends, who are affected by cancer.  With funding from an Echoing Green Fellowship, Doug served as Executive Director of the organization for four years before joining the LIVESTRONG Foundation in 2001 as Director of Survivorship.  He went on to lead LIVESTRONG as President and Chief Executive Officer, establishing the organization as the global leader in cancer survivorship.


Doug Ulman joined Pelotonia in November 2014 as President & Chief Executive Officer.  In this role, he is responsible for overseeing the strategic vision and direction of Pelotonia and also serves as an advisor to The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.


We are excited to welcome Doug Ulman to the TEDxNewAlbany stage this spring and can’t wait to see what he will share!
