Breaking Down Barriers in Native-American Cancer Care

Thursday, May 10, 2018

Last week, two staff members of the Cancer Support Community (CSC) traveled to Tuba City, Arizona, the largest community on the Navajo Nation and home to more than 8,600 people. There, they met with Navajo and Hopi leaders to learn about the unique challenges facing Native-Americans and their access to cancer care.

The following is a Q-and-A with programs and services manager Katie Dimond about her experience in Arizona.

It is a first in a series of new CSC programs working with Navajo Nation leaders, medical leaders, and other advocates to create a ground-breaking movement for cancer support and treatment on the largest American Indian Reservation.

Three Women Who Changed Cancer Care

Thursday, March 29, 2018

Despite growing numbers of women joining science, technology, engineering, and mathematics professions, the field of oncology is still a male-dominated one.

According to the latest American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) survey, for example, women made up fewer than 30 percent of the overall oncologist workforce.

That’s why during this Women’s History Month, we recognize the valuable contributions these three women (and many others) have made to improve cancer care for patients and families.
