Plainsboro, NJ (PRWEB) February 03, 2015
OncLive® and Fox Chase Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center that is part of the Temple University Health System in Philadelphia, announced today that they have joined forces to raise awareness of significant oncology research and clinical practice news through OncLive’s Strategic Alliance Partnership program. Through the new partnership, OncLive’s editorial and marketing teams will work with Fox Chase to highlight important oncology research and clinical practice news from the Center.
“We are honored to partner with Fox Chase Cancer Center to increase awareness of the Center’s cutting-edge work on cancer,” said Mike J. Hennessy Jr., senior vice president, oncology & specialty pharmacy. “The more we get the word out about new developments in cancer care, the more likely we are to keep finding better ways to treat, prevent or even cure this disease.”
Fox Chase’s rank as an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center makes it one of only 41 centers in the country to hold this highest level of designation. The doctors at Fox Chase treat more cases of rare and common cancers than other hospitals – and research shows that more experience is linked to better outcomes. In addition, Fox Chase physicians and researchers are leaders in setting new guidelines for breakthrough medicine and comprehensive care.
“Fox Chase is committed to pioneering discoveries that advance new approaches to cancer treatment, prevention, detection and survivorship,” said Richard I. Fisher, MD, president and CEO of Fox Chase. “We look forward to working with OncLive to share new developments at Fox Chase with the healthcare professional and patient communities.”
The alliance makes it possible, via OncLive’s suite of print and online publications, to offer healthcare professionals and patients direct, timely updates on key developments in cancer treatment and research happening at Fox Chase and more than 30 other leading cancer centers, nursing schools and physician groups around the country.
