Q&A with Holly:
Q: What is your favorite thing about being a CTR?
A: My favorite thing about being a CTR is knowing that the data collected is contributing towards researchers gaining a better understanding of cancer, improving cancer treatment and most importantly eventually finding a cure for cancer.
Q: You have worked in registries large and small and even assisted with starting a registry from scratch. What has been your most rewarding experience in a registry?
A: My most rewarding experience in a registry has been attending and assisting in tumor board conferences and collaborating with physicians and other healthcare professionals.
