Nancy has been a long-standing member of the GRACE Board of Directors since 2009 and will be assuming the President role from and finishing the term previously held by, Howard (Jack) West, MD, who is stepping down given his recent move from City of Hope to Summit Therapeutics.

On expanding her Board role, Nancy commented "I'm honored to serve in this new capacity and firmly believe in the mission of this organization. I look forward to continuing to work with Jack and this incredible Board of Directors; and plan to leverage my relationships and knowledge of the pharma industry to continue the great work of GRACE in providing credible, expert-mediated information to improve the overall care of cancer patients.”


We have worked closely with Nancy for many years and know her as a dedicated, warm, wonderful part of the GRACE family.  We are thrilled by her acceptance of this new role and continue to work to uphold the mission of GRACE.
