    Director's Message

    Mark Evers, MD

    Here at Markey, we aim to be the leaders of the region in cancer care and research. Following our 2013 NCI designation, we are taking the next step and next year, when we are reevaluated for the Cancer Center Support Grant, we will apply to be considered a Comprehensive Cancer Center. This will hold us to an even higher standard, and is a challenge we are excited to take on.

    Markey will be evaluated by additional criteria as we apply to be a Comprehensive Cancer Center, and it can be broken down into these essential pieces. We will need to demonstrate expertise in laboratory, clinical, and behavioral and population-based research, as well as collaboration across disciplines. Across the Commonwealth, we must continue to emphasize the work of our community outreach program, which conducts events and activities in outreach and education. And finally, we will be expected to provide information on the advances in healthcare for both healthcare professionals and the public.
