Categories: Health Research and Data
The Alaska Native Tumor Registry, part of the ANTHC Alaska Native Epidemiology Center, was recently awarded second place for data quality by the National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) program. Alaska Native Tumor Registry staff were presented with the award at the annual National Cancer Institute’s SEER meeting last week in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This award recognizes the registry’s commitment to data quality and indicates the achievement of meeting data quality benchmarks against which all SEER-funded registries are assessed. This award is an impressive accomplishment by the Alaska Native Tumor Registry staff, directed by Sarah Nash, Ph.D. who has been with ANTHC since August 2015. Congratulations to the Alaska Native Tumor Registry staff on their excellent work.
