In an honor that recognizes her significant contributions to cancer care on a national and international scale, the International Society of Nurses in Cancer Care (ISNCC) has announced that Marylin Dodd, RN, PhD, FAAN, is the recipient of the 2006 Robert Tiffany Lectureship.

The late Robert Tiffany was a founding member of the ISNCC and initiated the Biannual International Cancer Nursing Conference. Dodd will present her lecture at this year's conference in Toronto in September.

"I felt so thrilled and humbled to be the recipient of this award," Dodd said upon hearing of her award. "I was nominated by a group that is very dear to me, the Oncology Nursing Society. And years ago, I met Bob Tiffany; he was such an inspiration for global cancer care."

The ISNCC is dedicated to improving standards of cancer care through education, research and training using international expertise. The society fosters international networking and interaction among cancer nursing groups and individuals.

The Tiffany Lectureship honors ambassadors within cancer nursing who have made a significant contribution to cancer practice, education, research or management at a national, regional and/or international level.
