The WVU Cancer Institute Employee Recognition Awards Committee is now accepting nominations for its annual Employee Recognition Awards Program.
If you would like to nominate and recognize excellence amongst our faculty, members, staff, employees and Cancer Service Line staff members who devote their professional lives to cancer prevention, care or research in any and all capacities, please use this easy online nomination form. It has been revised to make it easier to nominate and recognize excellence in our colleagues.
This year a new Team award has been created to recognize a team of 3 or more individuals who demonstrate our values of collaboration, innovation, accountability and service to others.
Nomination applications must be submitted by July 15, 2018. The review committee will be comprised of last year’s awardees. Award recipients will be notified in late early summer, 2018. The celebration honoring the recipients will be held during a Tea Time in the Cancer Institute.
Awards will be given in the following categories of excellence in any of our guiding principles:
WVU Cancer Institute's Cancer Prevention and Control, in collaboration with the West Virginia Cancer Registry, has released the 2018 Cancer Burden Report. The report provides updated statewide, age-adjusted incidence rates and counts for cancer diagnosed among West Virginia residents from 2011 to 2015.
West Virginia University's Cancer Institute is well-known for its treatment and innovation. Leading the institute is Dr. Richard Goldberg, who has not only established himself as a transformative leader but also a potent researcher and educator.
Brian Boone, M.D., surgical oncologist in the WVU Medicine Department of Surgery and WVU Cancer Institute, performed the state’s first hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) infusion. This treatment delivers heated, sterilized chemotherapy to the abdomen as a treatment for cancer that has spread to the lining of the abdominal cavity, or peritoneum.
