Kimryn Rathmell: Nurses play such a vital role within Cancer Moonshot

Kimryn Rathmell shared a post on X:

At the heart of the Cancer Moonshot is transforming people’s experience with cancer through science, access to care, patient navigation, and engaging underserved communities. This is where nurses play such a vital role.

Nurses are on the front lines, building trust through deep care connections. These bonds offer unique chances to support people in managing cancer and to help people understand options to participate in research—important to achieve science that benefits everyone.”
