A.Fritz and Associates, LLC -  Preparing Cancer Registry Professionals for the Future

 

Latest news from A.Fritz and Associates...

Three facts that all of April’s friends should know about her: 

1.  April dedicated much of her life to teaching those dedicated professionals who capture the medical data on individual cancer patients that researchers use in the fight again this disease.  These data collectors are known as cancer (or tumor) registrars.

2.  Her favorite place to visit and explore (and attend cooking classes) was New Orleans, where she had many friends, including the members of a well-known Cajun band.

3.  She always liked a good party.  April always told me that when she eventually lost her battle with pancreatic cancer, she didn’t want a wake, but wanted a party. 

We’re going to put all these facts together to honor her when the National Cancer Registrars Association (NCRA) holds their Annual Educational Conference in New Orleans in May.  April’s colleagues, friends and relatives will hold a Celebration of Life/Cajun Dance Party. This event will also serve as a fundraiser for an educational fund to be named in her honor. Learn the details.


We currently have no classes scheduled.  Please check back for announcements of new any classes


We still intend to publish the Third Edition of the Cancer Registry Casebook as soon as the standard setters publish their final changes for 2018.

Education is the key to professional development in any field.  For cancer registrars, a good education forms the foundation for understanding the principles of oncology and the highly detailed work involved in cancer registration. April Fritz, RHIT, CTR and her associates provide the finest educational opportunities available in the field of cancer registry operations.
