Dr. Rodney R. Million is a pioneer in radiation oncology and a true innovator combining technology with research to improve the quality of cancer care in the US and abroad. He was a champion of treating patients undergoing cancer treatment with dignity regardless of their ability to pay. He understood the value of clinical research to reduce mortality and improve the quality of lives for those with cancer.
In honor of Rodney’s transformational and innovative career, the recipients of the travel fund award will, at the end of their tour, be able to demonstrate that they provided a new skill set to the oncology team in cancer clinics and other areas within Low- and Middle-Income Countries worldwide. The skill set taught should reflect an improvement in the quality of care and quality of life for cancer patients undergoing treatment.
Working with and supporting these leaders of the next generation, the Million fund, through ICEC, will help sustain careers and other related activities in global health and service to these struggling countries and other areas.
