Jenny has been a care coordinator since February, 2012 and came to us with over 15 years of experience as a nurse on the Stoddard Adult Oncology Inpatient Unit. Jenny specializes in the care of colorectal cancer and pancreatic cancer patients. She also facilitates the colon cancer multidisciplinary team conference, the Colorectal Cancer Support Group and the Advanced or Recurrent Cancer Support Group.

"I am very honored to be a part of our Care Coordinator team," says Jenny. "I get the opportunity to be with the patients and their families through diagnosis, treatment, and beyond to offer support, education, and always a listening ear.  I am grateful to be a part of their journey, and assist them in any way I can."

Colorectal Cancer Multidisciplinary Team

Jenny facilitates a multidisciplinary colorectal cancer conference twice a month with Dr. Robert Behrens, medical oncologist. The purpose of this conference is to discuss the best treatment plan for Stoddard colorectal cancer patients. The multidisciplinary team includes physicians, social workers, nurses, a psychologist, and a dietician. The goal of this multidisciplinary team is to provide a higher standard of care for Stoddard patients.
