Building a Cancer Survivorship Program at Stanford
Our mission is to improve the experience, and outcomes, of patients and caregivers throughout all phases of their cancer journey by advancing survivorship research, clinical care and education.
Our vision is to give people living with cancer the tools they need to manage their illness with confidence.
We are building interdisciplinary research teams to discover news ways of supporting patients and families, to understand the late effects of cancer therapy, and to integrate survivorship care within primary care.
