CAMS is pleased to welcome Dr. Susan Dorsey, PhD, RN, FAAN to campus from September 9 – 11.
Welcome to CAMS! CAMS was established in August, 2018 as one of three Exploratory Centers of Excellence funded by the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The Center is charged with building research infrastructure and centralized resources to catalyze new interdisciplinary, biobehavioral research teams to tackle the challenges of conducting research on human adults with multiple complex chronic conditions.
Patients in rural communities who are living with advanced cancer (stage 3B or 4, incurable), may not have regular access to renowned treatment centers such as the University of Iowa Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center, or evidence-based symptom management support.
