Peg Fields to receive MD Anderson's highest nurse-oncologist honor
Date:6/14/2010

HOUSTON - Margaret M. Fields, an advanced practice nurse in The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Department of Gynecologic Oncology, is the recipient of the 2010 Ethel Fleming Arceneaux Outstanding Nurse-Oncologist Award, made possible by The Brown Foundation, Inc.

A committee of MD Anderson's clinical faculty, patient care administration and nursing staff reviewed nominations from peers and patients before selecting Fields for the annual award, the institution's highest nursing honor. The Brown Foundation, Inc. established the award in 1982.

Fields will receive a cash award of $15,000, a crystal plaque and a commemorative pin at a 2 p.m. ceremony June 21 in the Cancer Prevention Building, eighth floor conference center, rooms 3, 4, 5 and 6. John Mendelsohn, M.D., president of MD Anderson, will lead the ceremony.

"I'm stunned, amazed and honored," said Fields. "Ethel Fleming Arceneaux was truly an inspirational nurse and a remarkable role model during her career at MD Anderson. It's an incredible honor to be thought of as part of her legacy."

Fields, known as Peg among colleagues and patients, plays an integral role at MD Anderson's gynecologic oncology outreach site at Harris County Hospital District's Lyndon B. Johnson (LBJ) General Hospital. Fields works closely with Lois Ramondetta, M.D., associate professor in the Department of Gynecologic Oncology and chief of the Division of Gynecologic Oncology at LBJ, as part of a gynecologic oncology team to provide underserved patient populations access to clinical trials of potential new therapies, state-of-the-art patient care and psychosocial support.

"The opportunity to make a powerful difference there is tremendous," Fields said.

Fields was introduced to oncology nursing during her childhood in Iowa in the early 1970s, when her younger sister was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
