We invite health care providers and cancer researchers to learn about the multidisciplinary clinical and research programs at Norris Cotton Cancer Center at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, one of only 40 National Cancer Institute (NCI) Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the country.
The Latest in Focus
The Breast Cancer-Body Fat Link
Studies now show that being obese or overweight can cause breast cancer in postmenopausal women. And for those who have a breast cancer diagnosis, body fat can complicate treatment and may increase risk for second cancer occurrence.
Patient referrals are easy using our DHMC Physician Connection Center or by contacting a specific oncology group. We offer over 150 clinical trials for specific cancer types.
More than 250 active research projects are part of the Cancer Center's quest to cure cancer, understand its causes, and promote ways to prevent cancer before it starts. These projects are led by 135 cancer research scientists supported by more than $68 million in grants each year from federal and other sources.
Norris Cotton Cancer Center also provides cancer professionals with educational and career opportunities in patient care and scientific research.
