By Michael Kelley, MD
PUBLISHED THURSDAY, JANUARY 1, 1970

Michael Kelley, MD, National Program Director of Oncology for the Department of Veterans Affairs, spoke at the Cancer Support Community's "Cancer Moonshot: 1 Year Later" event about distributing precision medicine to patients all over the country.

In a partnership with IBM Watson, the Department of Veterans Affairs has begun a program to sequence of the DNA of patients' tumor samples in order to provide more individualized treatment. Begining in just a few centers, this program is now at over 60 centers and reaching veterans all over the country, even the more rural areas. Using electronic medical records, the Department of Veterans Affairs is able to provide expert guidance on patients' cancer treatments no matter where they are being treated.
