Additionally, Chiang co-chaired the Patient-reported outcomes Work Group and serves as a member on the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC)/ASCO Joint Task Force to develop lung cancer quality metrics.
In her role as the Chief Network Officer, Chiang’s leadership has been critical in building the uniquely successful Smilow Cancer Hospital Care Center Network. The Network emphasizes establishing the highest standards of quality and safety for cancer care and innovation, including the implementation of a novel SCH/ASCO Quality Training pilot program which was deployed across all SCH Care Centers in 2017.
