Dedicated, compassionate treatment
The Vermont Cancer Center faculty and staff at the University of Vermont and Fletcher Allen Health Care are dedicated to providing state-of-the art cancer diagnosis and treatment, delivering compassionate care to maximize the quality of life for the patient and family throughout the disease, improving the human condition as it is affected by cancer, through fostering and sustaining innovative research in the laboratory that optimizes capabilities in the clinic, and advancing cancer prevention, control and early detection through education and research programs in a rural setting.
Fletcher Allen and the Vermont Cancer Center are working together to translate the latest research findings into life-saving care that makes a difference in the lives of our patients. This collaboration has led to advances such as pioneering a procedure that has revolutionized the treatment of many forms of cancer, offering a new lease on life for children with a rare form of cancer, and researching methods for reducing the side effects associated with chemotherapy.
The Vermont Cancer Center hosts numerous events throughout the year targeted at both the general public and healthcare providers. These events and conferences allow providers to stay up to date on the latest innovations and research, and also provide education and support to those in the cancer community.
