Meet October’s Registry Rock Star: Krista

Cancer Registry Fact: With cancer registries, lawmakers can see if certain policies have had an impact, such as encouraging healthy behaviors (like vaccinations, exercising, or quitting smoking) that lead to fewer people getting cancer.

Krista has worked in the cancer registry industry for seven years. Ever since she was a little girl, she wanted to work in the medical field but behind the scenes. While in school for health information management at The Ohio State University, she heard a lecture on the cancer registry and thought it sounded like the perfect career to pursue. She has been working in the cancer registry since graduating from OSU and loves it!
