Annette Amiotte, RN, BSN, oncology nurse with Hawaii Pacific Health at Pali Momi Medical Center
Richard Y. Lee, PhD, MD, radiation oncologist with Cancer Center of Hawaii
Kim Trotter, MS, Coordinator Oncology Research with The Queen's Medical Center
Amiotte and Dr. Lee received a lei, koa plaque, and $250.00 cash award from the UH Cancer Center. Trotter was not able to attend the event. Her award was received by Darlena Chadwick, a 2014 award winner from The Queen's Medical Center.
The annual Clinical Trials Participation Awards recognizes members of the oncology health community who demonstrate commitment to and belief in and support cancer clinical trials administered by the UH Cancer Center in their practices. They educate their patients about clinical trials as a treatment option and support their registration and participation in clinical trials. The Clinical Trials Participation Awards are made possible through the generosity of the Friends of the UH Cancer Center.
