The People Behind CCC

Winship's new National Cancer Institute comprehensive cancer center designation is due in part to the specially trained tumor registrars who collect and maintain detailed information about cancer patients and the treatments they receive. The data they capture allows us to understand and address the cancer burden more effectively. Pictured are five members of Winship's tumor registrar team: Nadjo Hatchett, Barbara Watkins, Lisa Kumwenda, LaToya Thompson, and Robbin Clark.
