Camilo Jimenez, MD, Chair, Neena Vijayvergia, MD, Co-Chair, and Shanetia Avinger, DNP, APRN, FNP-C, of the Diversity and Membership Committee moderated a roundtable discussion with Allied Health Professionals and Advanced Practice Providers in July. The purpose of this meeting was to engage in an open dialogue about how NANETS can better serve this sector of its membership, and the greater NET medical community. 

 

The group will continue to meet this year, and next. Desired outcomes include:

· Develop a plan on how to engage more allied health and advanced practice providers who are treating patients with neuroendocrine cancer.

· Identify how best to meet the needs of this important membership category and provide the best value for their membership in NANETS.

· Provide education and networking opportunities for allied health and advanced practice providers in a way that supports their careers.
