The Investor Collective (IC) brings together a progressive network of individuals devoted to enhancing and furthering the mission of the Cancer Center. This like-minded men’s group leverages their collective interests to advance cancer care in our community.
Together, IC members make a larger impact by choosing Cancer Center programs to fund over the course of the year. It’s time to vote on how we will designate the funds for 2021. See the categories and link to vote below.
Tumor registry team uses the power of data to help physicians and other leaders make decisions that will benefit patients as a whole and create procedures for addressing the most complicated and rare diseases. They analyze information related to patient care, including complete medical history, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship to identify trends.
Research is key to the future of cancer care. Clinical trials enhance standard cancer treatments, resulting in improved patient outcomes and survival rates. Every patient at Mary Bird Perkins is evaluated for participation in a clinical trial. Those who meet the criteria to participate in clinical research receive a standard of care treatment, but with the added benefit of a trial that may enhance their outcomes.
Mary Bird Perkins is committed to providing the highest standard of care and offering our patients the most up-to-date, leading edge treatment technology in the nation. Many innovative practices that have improved radiation-based imaging and treatment technology are a result of collaboration between the Center’s physicians and medical physicists. These scientists are finding new ways to use technology to enhance patient care.
