The newly constructed Hillman Cancer Center, located in the downtown campus, is equipped with a network of four touch-screen kiosks which contain information relative to services and programs to support cancer patients and their families through the journey of cancer survival.
Dr. Andrew Baum, Deputy Director for Cancer Control and Population Sciences, spearheaded the development and placement of the content onto the kiosks. Funded by the generosity of the Alcoa Foundation, the units are located on each of the Hillman Cancer Center’s four floors.
