The University Cancer Research Fund’s investment in Telehealth has extended the reach of UNC’s experts to dozens of sites located in 21 communities across the state. Learn more about UNC Cancer Center's commitment to Telehealth from the 2013 FY UCRF Annual Report to the General Assembly.
Our affiliated communities videoconference with a team of UNC experts from a wide variety of specialties who meet and discuss treatment plans for patients during weekly Multidisciplinary Oncology Tumor Boards. Learn more about our Tumor Boards on the Telehealth Help page.

Currently, physicians at Wilson Medical Center, Rex Hospitals, Moses Cone, Marion L. Shepard Cancer Center, and Mission Hospitals participate in Tumor Board conferences as patient cases warrant.
