2017 - PRESENT
2016 - 2017
Following three grant cycles, the Women's Breast Health Fund decided to investigate the feasibility of a breast cancer survivorship initiative. After meeting with leaders in the field of rehabilitation and survivorship services, a small group of clinicians met to discuss the possibility of a patient centered, community based survivorship program. St. Vincent's Foundation agreed to serve as the fiscal agent and Susan Sellers JD, President of the St. Vincent's Foundation along with Chris Nanni, CFGB President and Madeline Harris met with senior leaders from health systems in the Greater Birmingham area as well as the UAB School of Nursing to request their involvement. This collaborative community partnership is unprecedented in a climate of competition and healthcare changes. These senior leaders continue to remove their institutional "hats" and focus on the patient.
