Perking up the PERC

The Cancer Center's Patient Education Resource Center gives patients easy access to our complete library of all things cancer. And now, thanks to a major renovation, the PERC has a new and improved location and more up-to-date information than ever. Conveniently located on level B2 of the Cancer Center, next to blood draw, the PERC is open Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., to all patients and family members.

What Does Health Care Reform Mean for our Patients?

A new era in American health care has arrived: a time when everyone can get affordable health insurance coverage, no matter what your health history. Your cancer diagnosis cannot prevent you from getting insurance and, in fact, you might even have options to think about that cost less.
