Beebe Healthcare Recognizes Cancer Tumor Registrars Week

Beebe Healthcare recognizes National Cancer Registrars Week, April 6-10. This recognition followed a proclamation made by Gov. Jack Markell also recognizing the week.

Cancer registrars are data information specialists responsible for capturing information about every cancer patient. This information contributes valuable information to researchers, healthcare providers, and public health officials to better understand, diagnose, and find a cure for cancer.

The Beebe Healthcare Cancer Tumor Registry, located at Tunnell Cancer Center, consists of four registrars. Please join us in recognizing them.

Beebe Healthcare’s Cancer Registrars are:

Helen Moody, Lead Registrar, CTR
Susan Cadwallader, CTR
Marie Michael, Registry Assistant
Mary Lachmann, Registry Assistant

The proclamation reads, “Cancer registrars are committed to promoting the latest medical advances in the diagnosis and treatement of cancer; and the data provides essential information to researchers, healthcare providers, and public health officials to better monitor and advance cancer treatments, conduct research, and improve cancer prevention and screening programs.”

This week highlights the important role that professional cancer registrars play in capturing data to inform cancer research, prevention, and treatment programs, reads the proclamation.
