Health Connect South Radio on Midtown Business RadioX Features the American Cancer Society, GeorgiaCORE, and Kaiser Permanente

Dr. Len Lichtenfeld, Nancy Paris, and Dr. Bindu Lingam Speak of the Advances in Cancer Research

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - February 03, 2015) - On January 6th, 2015, Health Connect South Radio welcomed to the studio Dr. Len Lichtenfeld with the American Cancer Society, Nancy Paris with GeorgiaCORE, and Dr. Bindu Lingam with Kaiser Permanente.

Dr. Lichtenfeld is Deputy Chief Medical Director for the American Cancer Society, an organization over 100 years old that has evolved and changed over time. They are a nationwide organization with over 3 million volunteers. These volunteers keep the American Cancer Society successful. The efforts of the ACS are effectively raising awareness across the nation about causes of cancer and trying to help those who need access to treatment, attain it.

"There are four key things we want to do for people," said Lichtenfeld. "We want people to get well, we want people to stay well, we want to be able to find cures, do research, and improve the outlook for patients with cancer, and we want to help people fight back. We want those who have experienced cancer personally or experienced it in their family to be able to engage in advocacy."

Nancy Paris of GeorgiaCORE shared with us their mission and successful efforts on curbing cancer rates and improving the quality of life for cancer survivors in Georgia. When the organization first started, they were able to identify 82 clinical trials people with cancer could undergo. That number has grown to 650 and is still increasing. GeorgiaCORE supports active research in the state and helps link patients with trials that could potentially help them.

Dr. Bindu Lingam is an oncologist with Southeast Permanente Medical Group. Kaiser Permanente currently cares for 9 million members across the country. She shared with us her passion for clinical research and improving the lives of people who are effected by cancer.This organization is able to best facilitate practices and research efforts across their network by electronically sharing data across the country.
