Continuing education credits available for physicians and nurses


This lecture was established by Gouverneur H. "Bo" Nixon and his family in memory of his late wife, Dorothy P. "Dotsie" Nixon. The lecture seeks to raise awareness around the need for cutting-edge gynecologic cancer treatments and the latest in palliative care techniques.

The Nixon family established the Oncology Education and Prevention Fund through the Norton Healthcare Foundation with a goal of providing funding for the continuing education and certification of registered nurses to become oncology certified. To date, the program has provided support for the certification of more than 120 nurses now practicing at Norton Cancer Institute.


Gift Supports Continued Education to Benefit
Cancer Patients

 

 

The death of a loved one to ovarian cancer nearly 20 years ago has sparked a Louisville family’s quest to defeat what’s often called “the silent killer.” Over two decades, this family has touched nearly all aspects of cancer care at Norton Healthcare through funding and involvement in education, prevention, and treatment.

Today, the Nixon family continues to use their time and talent to support Norton Cancer Institute and help others who are in the battle for their lives.
