We are proud to share with you our inaugural issue of The Signature, the WVU Cancer Institute Annual Report.
The stories of hope, innovation and partnership contained within this publication help illustrate our commitment to provide optimal care and services to patients and their families throughout West Virginia and beyond.
You’ll read how we are increasing access to cancer care by broadening our network of services; engaging West Virginia communities in initiatives and programs that promote early screening to detect cancer early when it’s most treatable; individualizing treatment plans for each patient through multidisciplinary, disease-focused teams of cancer specialists; and advancing cancer care through cutting-edge research and technologies.
We hope you are encouraged by these efforts to build a healthier state.
