Institute Will Be Expanded With $102,000, Three-Year Grant Program Goal To Provide National Availability Of DVDs, Web sites To Cancer

The $102,000 grant, administered over three years, aims to make individual patient DVDs and secure Web sites, created by McLaren's Great Lakes Cancer Institute, something that will eventually be available to cancer patients nationwide.

The DVD is updated as needed each time the patient comes in for treatment.

Patients will soon be able to access all the information on the DVDs online by accessing their profile with a user name and password on a secure Web site. The individual patient pages will include links to other resources and will be updated on the same schedule as the DVD.
