Swim Across America is proud to announce that the proceeds from our Rhode Island Swim will benefit Women and Infants Hospital in Providence, RI.
The Program in Women’s Oncology at Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island, the largest and most diverse oncology service for women in the Northeast, was launched in 1989 to provide a broad spectrum of care for gynecological and breast cancers. It has evolved into a world-renowned, multi-disciplinary facility where clinicians uncover key answers to the questions of cancer, and focus on the needs of the patients and families.
The Program – a full member of the National Cancer Institute’s Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG), and affiliated by the American College of Surgeons as a Teaching Hospital Cancer Program – leads the nation in innovative approaches to the treatment and management of women with cancer. Its physicians spearhead ground-breaking research in basic science, translational and clinical research. The Center for Biomarkers and Emerging Technology recently introduced to clinical practice novel biomarkers for the risk assessment and management of patients with ovarian and endometrial cancer.
The Program in Women’s Oncology is dedicated to education in women’s cancers and maintains a board-approved Fellowship in Gynecologic Oncology and a Society of Surgical Oncology approved fellowship in breast cancer, training a total of 5 fellows each year.
