Bosher Crucial Catch

Number 1 in Georgia for Cancer Care

NCI-designated comprehensive cancer centers are recognized for the depth and breadth of their basic science and clinical research, in addition to cancer prevention, control, and population/behavioral sciences. There are currently 49 NCI-designated comprehensive cancer centers.

Designation requires effective collaboration among various disciplines and with our community partners in private practice and in academic centers throughout Georgia and across the nation.

With this recognition comes the responsibility to provide public information, education and outreach to other health care professionals and the community.

Winship's comprehensive designation was awarded after a rigorous evaluation process conducted by the NCI that included submission of a written grant and a site visit conducted by more than two dozen scientists from peer institutions.
