President & CEO, BC Cancer Foundation

Hi everyone,

Thank you to our August guest blogger Kelsie Thu for providing great insight into never-smoker lung cancer research at the BC Cancer Agency. We wish her great success as she continues her studies in this important area of cancer research.

And now, please join me in welcoming our guest blogger for September, Dr. Juanita Crook. Dr. Crook is a radiation oncologist at the BC Cancer Agency’s Sindi Ahluwalia Hawkins Centre for the Southern Interior, and she also serves as Chairman of the Board of the American Brachytherapy Society. Dr. Crook and her colleagues are leading the way in making high-dose rate brachytherapy treatment a reality for prostate cancer patients across the province, and I’m sure her posts will offer an exciting glimpse into the great progress being made in this area.

Thanks for reading,

Douglas
