A near 20-year cancer survivor, Angie left her corporate career at BellSouth in 2005 to focus on improving the quality of life and outcomes for Georgia’s cancer survivors. As Vice President of Georgia CORE, she manages day-to-day operations and leads the organization’s efforts on cancer survivors and patient navigators. She lives in the Virginia-Highlands neighborhood but gets “between the hedges” as much as possible to watch Georgia football in Athens. Angie can be reached at apatterson@georgiacore.org
