CancerQuest Education Program
Dr. Orloff obtained his PhD from Emory University in Microbiology and Immunology. In 1993, after completing post-doctoral training in HIV/AIDS at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Orloff joined the faculty of the Biology Department at Emory. Since 1998, he has been developing the CancerQuest program. The program includes many educational and outreach efforts directed at those affected by cancer.
The goal of the CancerQuest program is to educate and empower those affected directly or indirectly by cancer. The heart of the program is the CancerQuest website. Content on the site includes the biology and treatment of cancer as well as information on possible treatment side effects and psycho-social issues surrounding cancer.
In addition to the actual site content, CancerQuest has produced a variety of multimedia products that include DVDs, CDs, three dimensional posters and high school curricula. Working closely with international partners, material on CancerQuest has been translated into Spanish, Russian, Italian and both Simplified and Traditional Mandarin. CancerQuest members routinely present information to cancer patient support groups, educators, clinicians and attendees at health fairs. CancerQuest has received both national and international recognition for cancer education.
