    Director's Message

    Mark Evers, MDThe end of the year is a natural time to reflect on the past and look forward to the future, and this year at Markey, that happened to coincide with a visit from our External Advisory Board (EAB) earlier this month. Our EAB serves an important purpose – their existence is mandated by our National Cancer Institute designation, and their purpose is to guide Markey toward becoming an even better NCI designated center in every way possible.
