Politicians visit Shaw Cancer Center

Shaw Regional Cancer Center recently hosted the Council of State Governments West, including Senator Nancy Todd. The nonprofit, nonpartisan organization serving Western state legislatures represents 13 different states.The group took time out of their annual meeting to tour the facilities in Edwards and hear from Doris Kirchner, the president and CEO of Vail Valley Medical Center, of which Shaw is a department, as well as members of Shaw’s cancer care team. The dignitaries were particularly interested in the 10-year partnership Shaw has fostered with the University of Colorado Cancer Center to enhance access to big city specialists and make clinical trials available to patients in the high country.
