Johnson Honored with DCI Superstar Award

Alicia Johnson, RN, and a nurse navigator at Duke Women’s Cancer Care Raleigh, Duke Raleigh Hospital, was one of three individuals to receive this year’s Duke Cancer Institute Superstar award.

“Our 2018 DCI Superstar recipients represent the cream of the crop,” shared Michael B. Kastan, MD, PhD, executive director, Duke Cancer Institute, who visited Duke University Hospital, Duke Regional Hospital and Duke Raleigh Hospital to present the 2018 awards to recipients. “They are exceptional individuals who every day go above and beyond to ensure our patients receive the best care possible — the future of cancer care . . . now.”

Johnson was nominated by Brittany Davidson, MD, and Laura Havrilesky, MD.

“As a gynecologist oncologist, it’s hard to imagine being able to deliver high quality care to our cancer patients without Alicia’s kindness, compassion and extraordinary dedication,” wrote the nominators. “She has found assistance for patients and their families suffering financial toxicity and nominated multiple patients for Bucket List Foundation gifts—all of whom won trips or experiences of a lifetime. Alicia does much more than her job description requires.”

Other awardees include Stacey Lisi, a clinical pharmacists in GU at Duke Cancer Center at Duke University Hospital in Durham; and Robin Hardie-Hood, MD, of Duke Cancer Center at Duke Regional Hospital in Durham.
