Family Nurse Practitioner
Motivated and curious, Betty Goracke Olguin enjoys strategizing ways to improve patient care. As a nurse practitioner, Betty says a team-based approach is key to providing comprehensive cancer care.
“It is an honor and privilege to work with people from all walks of life,” she says. “We meet patients during a vulnerable time in their lives; respecting their experience and understanding their goals of care is essential.”
Betty has a special interest in clinical trials and survivorship care. Clinical trials offer hope of improving cancer treatment options. Survivorship care focuses on helping patients live their best life following cancer treatment.
In her free time Betty enjoys spending time with family, biking, gardening, and kayaking the Willamette River.
