After 23 years, our Education Program Coordinator, Lee Chamblee, is retiring from the MD Anderson family. Lee joined MD Anderson in January 1996 in the office of Performance Improvement where he taught nurses and staff personnel how to use system applications.
At the MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center, he has been instrumental in advancing the center’s vision. You have probably taken part on one of his behind –the-scenes Saturday tours of the Proton Therapy Center or attended one of his Beam News sessions.
Additionally, Lee has earned numerous awards throughout his time with MD Anderson for his outstanding dedication. This includes award recognition from his peers who value his eagerness and enthusiasm to help others. Without thinking twice, Lee has helped many patients with challenges they might encounter during their stay in Houston such as searching for lodging, restaurants, support groups, transportation and other services.
“I will really miss everyone here at the Proton Therapy Center because I think of everyone like my extended family. I would like to tell our patients and families that you are in the best place, getting the best treatment and we all care about you and your wellness.”
Lee has truly made an impact in the lives of many at MD Anderson. We want to wish him the best in his new chapter in life. “It has been an amazing journey working here at the MD Anderson Cancer Center,” Lee shared. “I am extremely fortunate that I end my career on a high note and will miss everyone!”
