February 21, 2023

Thorofare, NJ – Healio | HemOnc Today is excited to announce a new physician leadership structure, which features seven Associate Medical Editors from various subspecialty areas within oncology and hematology.

The new senior leadership board — which will guide Healio | HemOnc Today’s Editorial Board — will assist in content selection and act as ambassadors for the publication.

“Staying on top of the issues of interest to our readers requires close collaboration with the experts,” said Joan-Marie Stiglich, ELS, Healio’s Chief Content Officer. “Our goal with the new leadership design is to provide broad specialty and subspecialty coverage of issues and topics of importance to the oncology and hematology communities.”

Joining Healio | HemOnc Today as Associate Medical Editors are:

  • Charu Aggarwal, MD, MPH: Associate Director of Penn Center for Precision Medicine and Leslye Heisler Associate Professor for lung cancer excellence at University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine. She joined the Healio | HemOnc Today Editorial Board in 2018.
  • Adam M. Brufsky, MD, PhD: Professor of Medicine at University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Associate Director for Strategic Initiatives and Co-Director of the Cancer Center at UPMC Hillman Cancer Center in Pittsburgh, and Medical Director of the cancer center’s Magee-Women’s Cancer Program.

“Healio has always been at the forefront of getting up-to-date innovative information out to a large audience, which I find refreshing at a time when we are constantly bombarded with misinformation,” Jain said. “I appreciate the work Healio does covering cutting-edge medicine and health care, as well as policy and equity efforts, and the impact all of these have on the intersection of our health care systems.”

The new senior leadership board succeeds Chief Medical Editors Emeritus Derek Raghavan, MD, PhD, and John Sweetenham, MD. Healio | HemOnc Today is grateful for their leadership while serving as Chief Medical Editors and their continued support.
