CRANBURY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--OncLive®, a leading digital provider of resources and information to oncology professionals, spoke with renowned oncologists on the importance of nominating and recognizing individuals in the oncology field.
In a recent video interview, Dr. William K. Oh, M.D. professor of medicine, hematology, medical oncology and urology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine discussed the importance of the Giants of Cancer Care® program saying, “it is really about trying to identify those researchers and oncologists who really try the hardest and really have the most innovation and most impact in the field.”
Maurie Markman, M.D. an advisory board member of Giants of Cancer Care® and president of medicine & science at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, shared the simple goal of the program stating, “I have been privileged to work on the Giants of Cancer, actually since it was started. It’s an extraordinary program. The idea here is of course very simple, the oncology community to recognize those individuals who are considered Giants.”
Additionally, Patrick Borgen, M.D., chairman, department of surgery at Maimonides Hospital, director, Brooklyn Breast Cancer Program and chair of Giants of Cancer Care® states, “I think for young people coming up understanding the legacy, understanding who came before, it’s been said again and again by Giants that someone in their career made such a difference. So, I really want to encourage everyone out there to nominate your mentor, nominate someone in your field.”
The Giants of Cancer Care® award recognizes and honors pioneers, innovators, and leaders whose remarkable achievements have helped propel the field forward. The inductees are carefully selected by the advisory board and the selection committee based on each finalist’s contributions, clinical impact, and overall accomplishments in the field of oncology.
