The sole aim of Georgia Cancer Info is to enhance the quality of cancer care through research. Care for patients is at the heart of our mission and we are particularly attuned to the voices of survivors. Your experiences as a clinical trials participant can be helpful to us as in our quest to improve cancer treatment options for all Georgians.
As a survivor, we invite you to share your insights, experiences and opinions with us. Your feedback will be shared with Georgia CORE’s Board, staff, investigators and research network members and may be summarized on the website as a resource for others. You are also welcome to include a picture.
