NEW YORK, NY (December 10, 2015) — CancerCare, the leading national nonprofit organization providing free, professional support services to anyone affected by cancer, is pleased to welcome Terry Langbaum, Chief Administrative Officer, The Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, to its Board of Trustees.
“We are honored and delighted to welcome Terry Langbaum to serve on the CancerCare Board of Trustees,” said Patricia J. Goldsmith, CancerCare Chief Executive Officer. “Terry’s outstanding record of administrative leadership at The Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, a world-renowned institution at the forefront of cancer research and patient care, will undoubtedly guide CancerCare in expanding its capacity and reach.”
Langbaum has served as the Chief Administrative Officer of the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center since 2001. In this role, she is charged with planning and managing cancer programming across departmental lines and institutional entities, including five hospitals and several ambulatory sites. Among Langbaum’s programming initiatives is Managing Cancer at Work™, an innovative employee benefit program for organizations to help employees prevent cancer, recognize the disease’s early warning signs and better understand and manage cancer treatment once diagnosed.
“Terry’s formidable administrative and strategic expertise, as well as her longstanding dedication to developing innovative programs that support people affected by cancer, makes her an invaluable member of CancerCare’s Board of Trustees,” said Michael Parisi, President of the CancerCare Board of Trustees. “We are excited to work with her to further CancerCare’s mission of providing emotional, financial and practical support to anyone affected by cancer.”
“I am honored to be asked to join the Board of CancerCare, an organization dedicated to addressing some of the most challenging aspects of cancer – the emotional and fiscal drain that each and every cancer patient faces from the moment they learn that they have a cancer diagnosis,” says Langbaum. “I look forward to contributing to this respected and valued organization, with more than 70 years of service to cancer patients and their families.”
Prior to her current appointment, Langbaum served as Director, Hospital Affiliations, Johns Hopkins Medicine, and in various roles with The Johns Hopkins Children’s Cancer Center. Langbaum holds a Bachelor of Science in Management and a Master’s degree in Administrative Science from The Johns Hopkins University.
Langbaum is joined by 28 fellow Board Members who provide fiscal and strategic oversight of the national nonprofit. Their leadership plays a pivotal role in allowing the organization to directly serve more than 170,000 people affected by cancer across the nation each year.
