Cancer Registrars are professional beacons, they serve as the gatekeeper, standing tall, shedding light and guiding the collection of medical data that serves as the portal for vital healthcare statistics and decisions.
Cancer Registrars emit a strong signal to help guide other healthcare professionals with the evidenced-based data for analysis and medical decision-making.
Cancer Registrars give hope to cancer patients that someday their quality data collection efforts, monitoring and oversight, will one day lead to a cure for all cancers.
Registry Partners Incorporated would like to take this opportunity to recognize their own team of beacons, but all the other beacons around the world who brightly shine not only during this celebratory week, but every day!
