MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR
Case Comprehensive Cancer Center Cancer Education Committee
I am excited to share a new initiative with you, aimed at improving cancer training and education throughout our institutions.
We currently have a multitude of training environments, many of which are not coordinated with each other and do not take full advantage of the superb training environment that our location can provide. We believe we have a unique opportunity to take the lead in not only improving the coordinated effort of these cancer activities throughout our training programs, but also to enhance the quality of training, and improve support for these activities through internal sources, philanthropy and grant efforts.
To accomplish these objectives, we have developed the Cancer Education Committee, a group of cancer training leaders throughout our institutions, to start the dialogue about how we can best coordinate activities, consolidate training and expand horizons in cancer in cancer education and research.
Please join me in welcoming this committee and in support of their efforts to improve the reach of the cancer center community in cancer research and education.
