The commitment and compassion of Georgia’s oncology community has always impressed me. In fact, I find it inspirational.
Let’s face it. Lots of Georgians are diagnosed with cancer each year and it’s a frightening disease. Thankfully our state is on the leading edge in science, technology and clinical care so many quality treatment options are available. We have highly trained oncologists and cancer care professionals in state-of-the-art facilities -- essential ingredients in preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer.
But time and again I have heard from cancer patients that it is more than skill, training and facilities that make the difference in their cancer journey. They recount vividly the compassionate concern of the doctors, nurses, social workers and navigators who provided care and treatment. And they define compassion as an essential ingredient of quality care and of healing. By responding to the needs, feelings and concerns of patients, survivors and their families, Georgia’s oncology community demonstrates its commitment to excellence in cancer care.
The commitment to excellence doesn’t end there, however. Each and every day Georgia oncologists are searching for cures and new treatment options by conducting clinical trials and collaborating with their colleagues in academic centers and community practices. Together they ensure that the most promising and effective cancer care is available – here and now.
Through Georgia CORE and GeorgiaCancerInfo.org we invite you to learn about the care, and treatment and clinical trials available in Georgia and the growth and success of Georgia’s inspirational oncology community.
