With multidisciplinary training and experience in medical oncology, epidemiology, and clinical cancer genetics, Melanie R. Palomares, M.D., M.S., affectionately known as “Dr. Mel”, practices preventive oncology. Dr. Mel coined this term to describe the care of healthy patients who are either at increased risk for cancer or are cancer survivors at risk for second cancers. After nearly 20 years in academic medicine, first at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, and then at the City of Hope, and after experiencing cancer personally, she founded the Cancer Prevention Movement, which empowers individuals to maintain long-term health through risk-based screening and preventive strategies.
