A message from Scott Christensen



Dr. Scott Christensen


We know cancer is not a disease that travels well. Being in familiar surroundings and having a strong support network nearby are very important aspects of treatment and recovery.

Our priority is to make sure each of our partnering sites in the UC Davis Cancer Care Network has what it needs to provide the best care, right in the community setting. With our strong history of effective collaboration and pioneering use of telemedicine, we can tap the expertise and insights of many talented physicians and bring the full weight of academic medical research to bear in support of our patients.  

By synergizing the strengths of an academic health system and community-based care, the network formalizes the commitment to collaboration with community providers and to promoting first-rate care across the region.
