Georgia CORE's History

In 2001, the then Georgia Cancer Coalition challenged the Georgia Society of Clinical Oncology (GASCO), the state organization of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) to lead the development of a model for a statewide research network of multidisciplinary care providers and scientists from academic and community settings. Support for the project was provided by the Cancer Coalition, American Society of Clinical Oncology, Georgia Society of Clinical Oncology and the American Cancer Society.

Based on interviews and focus groups conducted across the state, a business plan was developed for the Georgia Center for Oncology Research and Education. The concept was presented for review and comment at the Georgia Oncology Research Network Summit in 2002. The resulting affirmation from physicians, care providers, educators and scientists led to funding for implementation from the Georgia Cancer Coalition, GASCO, the Oncology Nursing Society, Siemens Medical Solutions, and the Schools of Medicine at Emory, the (then) Medical College of Georgia and Mercer University.
