GMC adds 2 to oncology leadership team


LAWRENCEVILLE -- Two experienced health care professionals were recently announced as new members of the oncology program leadership team at the Gwinnett Medical Center.

Anthony M. Landis was appointed medical director and Katherine Michaud was named director for oncology services. GMC President and CEO Phil Wolfe said in a news release that Landis' experience with all types of cancer and treatment options would ensure the program offers the best possible care.

Landis has served cancer patients for more than three decades, a news release said, including experience as part of clinical research. Landis has been a pharmaceutical trial investigator in more than 50 studies and affiliated with the Atlanta Regional Community Clinical Oncology Program, the National Cancer Institute and the Georgia Oncology Partners Research and Education Foundation.

Landis has been an active member of the American Cancer Society board of directors eastern chapter since 1984, and a member of the Translational Oncology Research International network.

Landis will be responsible for monitoring quality and performance improvement information, policy development, review and oversight and development of subcommittess and leadership.

Michaud has 10 years of experience in health administration and specialty physician practices. She previously led oncology operations for Maine's third-largest health system.

"Ms. Michaud's knowledge of all aspects of practice administration and her strength in managing the coordination between the hospital, medical staff and the individual will help us reach our goal of expanding oncology's offerings to comprehensively address needs regarding cancer prevention, treatment and ongoing care for patients," Wolfe said.
