Animal Cancer Center enhances online presence

April 21, 2009

The Robert H. and Mary G. Flint Animal Cancer Center at Colorado State University is introducing a newly revamped website to the public as of April 20.

Animal cancer info

The website contains new information with a whole new look and feel that makes navigation easy for all visitors. The website creators hope that the website becomes the site for animal cancer information.

Some of the new elements include feature stories about patients and faculty members, current information on cancer, treatment options, clinical trials, emotional support, educational programs and the ACC research program. Clients will now be able to get to know members of the ACC clinical team, obtain directions and find a place to stay in Fort Collins if traveling from out of town. The site also allows visitors to donate online and to sign up on an e-mail list to get updates on events, newsletters and news. Referring veterinarians have quick access to information about clinical trials and client handouts on various types of cancer.

Info for veterinarians and researchers

The website also includes information for veterinarians who are interested in oncology residency training programs or a Ph.D. in cancer biology, as well as information for researchers or industry professionals who want to partner with ACC researchers.

Many people were involved in the creation of the revamped website, including Dr. Christine Hardy, director of Operations for the ACC as project coordinator/manager, and Bob Provopulos, director of Creative Services for the ACC as Web guru and design coordinator, who also worked closely with Signature Advertising, a Denver company. Dr. Steve Withrow, ACC director, provided the vision to create a state of the art website that matches the ACC’s capabilities. CSU Ventures, CSU Animal Cancer Center and Paul Maffey in the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences development office provided financial support.

Much of the content was provided by Hardy, Ken Crump, retired former head oncology nurse, and Dave Lori, business development associate.

State-of-the-art site

The ACC website had not changed much in the previous 10 years, and the new state-of-the-art site provides a clean, professional look to match the quality of the ACC programs.

The ACC is the preeminent cancer center for animals offering the latest in diagnostics and treatment for all kinds of cancer in companion animals including surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

The ACC is physically attached to the CSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital in Fort Collins, a full service veterinary hospital offering the best care for all species in all areas of general and specialized medicine and surgery.
