Cancer Care and Prevention
Treating the entire person, not just the disease…
That's what the John B Amos Cancer Center believes in.
Friday the center hosted a cancer symposium with its partner Columbus Regional.
Topics included skin cancer prevention and treatment, genetic testing and new thinking in cancer care.
â€œWe have new therapies, we have new chemos, therapies that target a specific side in the treatment of cancer,â€ said Angela Dumbya, nurse practitioner. â€We've come a long way, and we still have a long way to go.”
The Cancer Center is also part of a pilot program with the association of Community Cancer Centers.
The focus is to help patients understand the healthcare system.
