About This Event

When someone receives a cancer diagnosis, they likely expect to interact with an oncologist (cancer doctor), yet there is an entire care team that supports a patient during and after their treatment. Each person on this team, including physicians, pharmacists, skilled nursing professionals, physical and occupational therapists, and nutritionists, all play a crucial role in supporting patients and their families.

Join St. Luke’s Regional Cancer Center and St. Luke’s Foundation to hear from a panel of these professionals to learn more about their roles in caring for patients with a cancer diagnosis. The presentation will conclude with an interactive Q&A.

Panel guests:

  • Ben Anderson, PharmD, BOCP – Pharmacist in Charge, Infusion Therapy Clinic; PGY2 Oncology Residency Program Director
  • Nils Arvold, MD – St. Luke’s Radiation Oncology; Chief, Section of Oncology/Radiation Oncology
  • Tracy Durovec, RN, OCN – Infusion Therapy/Vascular Access Team
