Ask a Specialist: A New Era in the Fight Against Cancer

Recently, The Queen’s Medical Center became a certified member of MD Anderson Cancer Network, a program of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, ranked No. 1 in the country by U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Hospitals” survey. Dr. Clayton Chong, chief of oncology at The Queen’s Medical Center, says physicians can become MD Anderson Cancer Network Certified Physicians.

 

The certification process includes:

  • Chart reviews
  • Site assessments
  • Nurse evaluated & audited on how to administer chemotherapy

 

To learn how Queen’s affiliation with MD Anderson Cancer Network® will further advance cancer care in Hawaii, join Dr. Chong, along with Dr. Paul Morris, Chair of the Cancer Committee at Queen’s; and oncologist Dr. Paul Palalay, for Queen’s free Speaking of Health lecture at Queen’s – Punchbowl. That’s on Wednesday, September 30, from 6 – 7 pm.
