In 2018, fifteen ACCC Cancer Program Members were awarded grants from Pfizer, Inc. for quality improvement (QI) projects focused on improving the quality of care for patients with breast cancer. Grantees planned and implemented projects that supported increasing the rates of guideline-concordant BRCA testing for this patient population. Hear from grantees about their findings and experiences in successfully orchestrating a QI project and expanding BRCA testing for eligible patients with breast cancer. Learn about open opportunities to participate in an ACCC-supported QI project, then see how ACCC's online self-assessment tools can help identify areas of improvement at your program or practice.

Charles H. Shelton, MD
Radiation Oncologist; Chair of Cancer Committee; Breast Program Leader
As the only full-time radiation oncologist on the Outer Banks, Shelton has not only established himself as an expert in cancer services but also has been the champion for The OBH Cancer Committee. In fact, he assisted the committee in achieving accreditation from the Commission on Cancer. Currently, he serves as chairman of the Cancer Committee.
Shelton’s educational journey is an interesting one: undergraduate studies at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA, followed by work as a lab technician for the University of South Alabama, then on to medical school at the same location and then back to UVA for radiation therapy residency. He realized his passion was radiation therapy in medical school following rotations in orthopedics, general surgery and hematology/oncology. Prior to work at the Outer Banks Radiation Therapy Center, Shelton worked as a radiation oncologist in Lewisburg, WV.
In his spare time, Shelton enjoys his two dogs, Lucy and Peachy, and his cat Theo (all from the SPCA), as well as playing tennis and engaging in outdoor activities. He loves to travel with his wife and spend time with his four children, two of whom are adopted – one from Russia and one from Kazakhstan.
Those who know Shelton have experienced his fun-loving personality, relaxed nature and, above all, his kind heart. Like the time he volunteered to work with the flash-flood victims in his former hometown of Lewisburg. In 2016, the town was overwhelmed by severe flooding and many homes were destroyed. In the week spent there, Shelton assisted with cleanup and rebuilding of homes. He also worked with others to distribute supplies to the victims.
Dr. Shelton is excited about the new location of the Radiation Therapy Center in Nags Head and is excited to watch how cancer services in the Outer Banks continue to grow.
