Shaw appointed Cancer Liaison Physician

Christiana Shaw, M.D., M.S., an assistant professor of surgery at UF, has been appointed Cancer Liaison Physician for the cancer program at UF&Shands.

The American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer established the Cancer Liaison Physician program in 1963 “as a grassroots network of physician volunteers willing to manage clinically related cancer activities in their local institutions and surrounding communities,” according to the college’s website.

Shaw will be responsible to evaluate and report performance data for the UF&Shands cancer program, promote quality improvement efforts based on that data, carry out Commission on Cancer initiatives at UF&Shands and collaborate with affiliated agencies, such as the American Cancer Society. Her appointment will last for three years.
