THE DIRECTOR OF Pastoral Care at Roswell Park, Beth Lenegan, PhD, has been elected to the Board of Directors of the National Association of Catholic Chaplains (NACC).

She will also serve as a liaison between the NACC and the Association of Clinical Pastoral Education.
“It is a great honor to be asked to serve the National Association of Catholic Chaplains,” said Dr. Lenegan. “I’ve worked with several wonderful chaplains in my time at Roswell Park and watched them minister with such compassion and sensitivity to cancer patients and their families. It will be a privilege to work on a national level to help these caregivers apply their gifts to be of service to others.”
