Lurie Cancer Center Nurses Honored for Lymphoma Patient Care
Lurie Cancer Center nurses, Caroline Mangan, MSN, RN, OCN, and Sarah Miyata, MSN, ACNP-BC, were recognized for their professionalism and exceptional patient care by the Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF).
Mangan, a lymphoma clinical research nurse in the Clinical Trials Office, and Miyata, a nurse practitioner in Lurie Cancer Center’s Lymphoma Program at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, received the “Lee Grubman Caregiver of the Year” Award, at LRF’s 2021 Chicago Lymphoma Walk in August.
Walk participants were invited to nominate a special caregiver for the inaugural award, “established to honor and acknowledge the impact caregivers have on patients’ cancer journeys. “Nurses are often the first healthcare professional patients meet when they begin their lymphoma journey,” said Meghan Gutierrez, chief executive officer of the LRF. “Their expertise and knowledge of the disease, combined with their compassion and advocacy for their patients, provide comfort and support. We are proud to honor the nurses of the Chicagoland area, including Sarah and Caroline, and recognize the critical role they play in the treatment and care of people with lymphoma.”
