Dr. Lacey Pitre is a Medical Oncologist with a clinical focus in breast and women’s cancers. She is the current Ontario Health Lead for Northeastern Ontario, responsible for ensuring access to quality treatment and therapy for a vast region that boasts the highest use of videoconference patient visits and twelve satellite chemotherapy suites in diverse communities.  As a result, her strengths include balancing the needs of cancer patients in the entire region of North East Ontario and recognizing the importance of community partners and patients in clinical research. Dr Pitre has been instrumental in the formalizing the structure of Clinical Oncology Research at the NECC. She is the chair of the Oncology Clinical Research Department and the Principle Investigator of over 15 Phase II and III trails. Her leadership collectively involves ensuring trials chosen reflect the needs of our diverse population in the North, and that HSN/HSNRI complies with regulatory bodies to ensure that the research is safe and patient-centered.   Dr Pitre is a pioneer in access to clinical trials in remote regions of Canada and locally is the Team Lead for the provinces first pilot in Access to Remote Clinical Trials in the North. This endeavor will lead to better access to novel agents for patients leading to the opportunity of better treatment outcomes and access to novel agents that were previously not available patient living outside the Sudbury catchment.
