MD Anderson Cancer Center visit by HCH delegation
On April 13th, 2015, a delegation headed by Prof. Huang Gang , vice president of Hunan Cancer Hospital(HCH), visited MD Anderson Cancer Center and attended the annual conference of Global Academic Program (GAP). Mr. Tong Changjiang, Dr. Tang Jie, Dr. Pu Xingxiang, Mr. Luo Chenhui and Dr. Liu Huai participated in the delegation. HCH has kept sending delegations to attend this conference annually since 2012 when we signed the Momorandum of Understanding with MD Anderson Cancer Center.
The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center was created in 1941 and shall be the premier cancer center in the world. MD Anderson Cancer Center employs close to 20,000 people, including nearly 1,700 faculty members. The GAP annual conference provides a forum for faculty from MD Anderson Cancer Center and its Sister Institutions to develop collaborations and exchange research results and ideas. MD Anderson Cancer Center has launched an ambitious and comprehensive action plan, called the Moon Shots Program, to make a giant leap for patients – to rapidly and dramatically reduce mortality and suffering in several major cancers.
Prof. Tang Jie from the Department of Gynecologic Oncology and Dr. Liu Huai from the Department of Radiation Oncology of HCH delivered their oral presentations at their respective sessions in the forum on April 15th. On April 16th, the delegation had a meeting with Prof. Ethan Dmitrovsky, the executive vice president of MD Anderson Cancer Center. Prof. Gang Huang introduced the superiority and recent progress of our hospital, including our key disciplines of oncoplastic surgery and nursing and our advantage in psychological care for cancer patients. “We are very proud that our hospital is the nation's first cancer hospital certified by the JCI Commission”, Prof. Huang Gang said, “we are sincerely looking forward to becoming one of the sister institutions of MD Anderson Cancer Center”. Prof. Ethan Dmitrovsky appreciated our achievements, and he hoped that both of us could increase academic exchanges and cooperation in the future. At the end of this meeting, Prof. Ethan Dmitrovsky kindly received the invitation of the 2015 Xiangya and MD Anderson Cancer Center International Forum on Oncology.
