“My name is Abra Kelson; I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker. I serve NWMS as the support service manager. I am also a leader of the NWMS’ patient advocacy chapter, CPAN. As a social worker at NWMS, I am humbled to work with people who are often in the midst of the most challenging time of their life. I embrace care that places patients and families at the center, regarding the patient as the expert of their life. Through clinical practice, education and advocacy, I strive to empower patients and their loved ones to participate actively in their health care and management. My service approach includes respecting patients’ values, preferences, and expressed needs”.

“My name is Isaac Madsen-Bibeau, and I’m the Supportive Services Coordinator for NWMS. In my position, I work with patients and their families to connect them to all types of resources. I also work on NWMS’s Enhancing Oncology Model, a project centered around increasing health equity. In both halves of my position, I focus on ways that individuals are supported and limited by the institutions and systems around them, and how I can assist patients as they work with those systems.”
