As a medical oncologist specializing in breast cancer, I believe in providing women the most tailored, state-of-the-art treatment options. That is why I created the (BEC) when I joined the staff at Fox Chase Cancer Center in 1990.
As the director of the BEC, I work with a team of breast cancer experts, including medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, pathologists and social workers. Together, we develop a comprehensive treatment plan for patients with early stage breast cancer.
By providing patients with useful information about their treatment options, we are empowering them with the knowledge to make informed decisions about their care. I believe this is very important for women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, as they can be overwhelmed with the amount of information available today.
In addition to my clinical expertise in breast cancer, I am dedicated to breast cancer research. At Fox Chase, I was the first leader of the Breast Cancer Research Program (now the )Women's Cancer Research Program). In this program, I work with investigators from basic, clinical, and population science who collaborate in their research of breast cancer prevention, what causes tumors to develop, detection and treatment.
I have devoted my career to translational research, which turns basic research into therapeutic treatment for breast cancer patients. At the same time, my interest in investigational research is to reduce the incidence of breast cancer and improve outcomes.
I am committed to generating a national agenda for breast cancer research and care. Because of this interest along with my experience in research, Fox Chase Cancer Center has chosen me to represent the institution as the Principal Investigator for the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG). ECOG conducts clinical trials in all types of adult cancers and is one of the largest clinical cancer research organizations in the United States. ECOG has appointed me as an active member of their Breast CORE committee and Principal Investigator for the Data Safety and Monitoring Committee.
In addition, I serve as a member of the Breast Cancer Guidelines Committee for the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), an alliance of 21 of the world's leading cancer centers, including Fox Chase Cancer Center. In my time here, I have been at the start of some major programs, including my experience as the original Director of the Women’s Cancer Center and one of the establishing members of the Clinical Breast Cancer Survivors Program at FCCC. I am also on the Institutional Review Board; Data Safety and Monitoring Committee, Extramural Research Program; Steering Committee of Breast Survivorship Program; Navigation Steering Committee; and the Ambulatory Services Steering Committee.
