Meet August’s Registry Rock Star: Celeste

Cancer Registry Fact: With cancer registries, lawmakers can see if certain policies have had an impact, such as improving access to diagnose and treat cancer earlier, when it’s more effective and costs less.

Celeste has been working in the cancer registry profession for nine years. She decided to become a CTR while she was taking HIM classes. She attended an AHIMA meeting where a cancer registrar was the guest speaker and made the cancer registry sound very interesting. She liked the idea of being an investigator. That’s what registrars do, find all the data regarding a patient’s cancer journey. She feels honored to be a part of their journey.
