The Tate Cancer Center is Celebrating Its 15th Anniversary
We saw our first patient on February 24, 2003 and have cared for more than 15,000 patients since then. We recognized all of the providers, staff and volunteers that touch our patients’ lives with a lunch on February 21. There will be a more formal anniversary celebration in the fall.
Heartbeat for Health
The Tate Cancer Center participated in the annual Heartbeat for Health on February 10 at the YMCA in Arnold, MD. The fun filled event drew over 500 attendees, and offered screenings, exercise opportunities and entertainment.
Save The Date
We will be hosting the second annual Minimally Invasive Cancer Care Symposium on May 9, 2018 from 4 – 9pm. We plan to share our knowledge, skills and experience using the most updated tools, treatment strategies and targeted therapies in minimally invasive cancer care.
