Dec. 3 — School faculty serves on FCC think tank to improve cancer care using technology Katherine Kim, an assistant professor at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing, was one of 58 senior thought leaders who developed the next phase of the Linking & Amplifying User-Centered Networks through Connected Health (LAUNCH) initiative, a joint project of the Federal Communications Commission and the National Cancer Institute. The group recently released a summary of the day-long think tank, “LAUNCH Senior Leadership Think Tank: Exploring the Future of Connected Cancer Care in Rural America and Beyond.” Katherine’s research focuses on information technology to improve community health, care coordination and clinical research. She led a session on the importance of incorporating patient and family input in the design of any interventions. LAUNCH seeks to address one of the key challenges of rural cancer care: quality symptom management. The goal is to leverage connectivity and advanced technology to improve the lives of cancer patients living in rural areas, who bear the double burden of having the highest cancer mortality rates and lowest levels of broadband access and adoption.
