Dr. Madeleine Kane Announced as CCC Chair
The Colorado Cancer Coalition is pleased to announce Dr. Madeleine Kane as the new Chair.
Dr. Kane started her academic oncology career more than 30 years ago at the Univerisity of Colorado Health Sciences Center and has held leadership positions as Interim Head, Divison of Medical Oncology, Chief, Hematology/Oncology, Denver VA, and now Chief, Hemtology/Oncology, Denver Health Medical Center. She has worked in both basic laboratory and clinical research, the latter of which she continues. She has also worked in outreach settings in Montrose, Longmont and Alamosa, where she provided Hematology/Oncology care. Dr. Kane is a strong believer in the continuity of cancer patient care, from prevention/screening to diagnosis, through treatments and supportive care, and then ongoing survivorship support or end of life care. She welcomes the opportunity to learn about current statewide efforts in cancer control and has the goals of strengthening and reviving the Colorado Cancer Coalition Network and promoting educational initiatives for all those involved in the cancer patient continuum of care. She looks forward to partnering with Dr. Cathy Bradley and all of you in these endeavors and regrets she could not be present at the Kickoff due to a previously scheduled NIH meeting in the DC area.
