Check out the new
website by MUSC's Hollings Cancer Center (HCC) at http://hcc.musc.edu/index.htm.
Vicky Agnew, director of strategic communications, said the new website
allows HCC to feature important people, late-breaking news and the
latest clinical trials.
"Given our dual
missions of treating patients and conducting research, our site has to
meet the needs of several audiences – patients, physicians at MUSC and
elsewhere, and our researchers and outside collaborators, and donors.
Our goal was to ensure the site is easy to navigate while being warm
and welcoming. We hope we've succeeded."
"When Fred the Snake Got Squished
and Mended" by Peter Cotton, M.D., MUSC professor, Gastroenterology
& Hepatology, describes how Fred, the snake, was mended back
together after he was run over by an ambulance. To sew the two halves
back together, a doctor required a special jungle thread that Jungle
Jim was able to get from underneath a rhino. Copies, $5, are available
from Rita Oden at 876-7226 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
