Duke Cancer Institute member Haley Moss, MD, MBA, recently joined the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' National Oncology Program Office as director of the Breast and Gynecologic Cancer System of Excellence, which aims to advance and expand women Veterans' access to teleoncology and potentially lifesaving clinical trials and treatments.
"In the past two decades, there has been an unprecedented growth of women Veterans seeking medical care through the Veterans Health Administration. In response to the ever-growing population of women Veterans, the National Oncology Program Office through the VHA has developed the Breast and Gynecologic Cancer System of Excellence," said Moss. "We will be establishing partnerships with universities and National Cancer Institute-designated cancer centers to promote breast and gynecologic cancer research and increase opportunities for these patients to participate on clinical trials. We will provide care coordination services to patients who may need to go between the VA and other health systems as they navigate their cancer care."
Moss joined DCI as an assistant professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology in 2019 following a three-year fellowship with that department. Moss' research "has focused on the interface of women’s health and policies to improve the value of cancer care."
She is also a practicing gynecologic oncologist who sees patients in clinic at Duke Cancer Center Durham and Duke Women's Cancer Care Raleigh as well as at Duke University Hospital and Duke Raleigh Hospital.
With the new role, Moss retains her faculty and clinical positions at Duke.
