With her young son in tow, running may be more of a necessity than a hobby for Aprille! But she does enjoy running and anything else that involves being outdoors, particularly in one of Georgia’s state parks. An experienced clinical research professional, Aprille is the Research Manager for Georgia CORE. She has extensive experience in the area of oncology diagnostics as well as a background in public health, and her primary role is to ensure that compliant and ethical research is conducted within the Georgia NCORP (NCI Community Oncology Research Program) network. You can email Aprille at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you frequent the Chattahoochee River as it snakes through the city, you may find Alice rowing along with her fellow rowing club members. She loves being on the water and finds it a perfect way to end the work week as the Oncology Clinical Nurse Specialist with Georgia CORE. As an advanced practice nurse in genetics, Alice interviews, educates and counsels individuals about family history and hereditary risk assessment to reduce the cancer burden in women with a high risk of hereditary cancer and increase general awareness about the condition. She received the President’s Award from the International Society of Nurses in Genetics in 2018. You can reach Alice at email@example.com.
A lifelong community health professional and volunteer, Nancy lives in the Druid Hills neighborhood but feels blessed to frequent Saint Simons Island. Enjoying the outdoors there, as well as meditation, reading and cooking whenever possible, are great ways to balance her role as the President and CEO of Georgia CORE. Nancy works with partners and the board of directors to lead the organization’s efforts to improve access to clinical trials, as well as personalized cancer care and support for patients, survivors, and caregivers. She has led Georgia CORE since its inception in 2005. You can reach Nancy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com.
