Physician Committees

The Via Pathways Disease Committees are comprised of practicing oncologists from within the Via Network of participating cancer centers. The Disease Committees are led by co-chairs who develop the agendas, lead the Disease Committee calls and ensure the distribution of timely and accurate minutes and evidence reviews. All voting members including Co-Chairs must complete and maintain a Conflict of Interest Disclosure that is available for review at all times. The links below provide more detail on the process and membership.
