Clinical Trials Newsletter

Clinical Trials at Mission Hope Cancer Center - As of 2.17.15

This publication is designed to inform our colleagues in the medical commu-nity, and especially physicians who are considering treatment options for their patients with cancer, about current clinical trials and research studies available at the Mission Hope Cancer Center. Our goal is to provide the most advanced cancer treatments and newest technologies for an array of cancer disease types—and to do this as a collabo-ra-tive extension of your practice. We understand that the growth and viability of your practice is built upon the patients you serve. By working with our Clinical Research program, your treating physician status is maintained and the continuity of service to your patient is preserved. We hope you find the newsletter to be a valuable resource worthy of your regular attention.

For further information please contact Bob Dichmann, M.D., April Kennedy, M.D., Todd Erickson, M.D. or Stephen Vara, M.D. by phone at 349.9393. Additionally, our Clinical Research Coordinator is available by phone; please call Alison Fernandez, RN, MPH, OCN, at 346.346.
