KALAMAZOO, MI, May 29, 2024 — WMCC radiation oncologist Simon A. Brown, MD., has been elected chair of the new practitioner committee of the American College of Radiation Oncology (ACRO). As chair of the committee, Dr. Brown will also serve on the ACRO Board of Chancellors.

WMCC executive director Bridget VandenBussche, MHA CPHRM, applauded ACRO leadership for electing Dr. Brown as chair of the new practitioner committee. “Dr. Brown is an excellent radiation oncologist and will be an asset as both a mentor and as leader of this committee”, said VandenBussche. “This appointed role speaks volumes to his interpersonal skills, warm demeanor and relationships he has fostered within ACRO and its physician members.”

Dr. Brown is excited to begin serving in his new role. “I am passionate about mentorship and advocacy”, he stated. “I aim to actively recruit and support new members to our college.”

The American College of Radiation Oncology steadfastly upholds the highest standards of care for radiation therapy patients and champions success in the field through education, responsible socioeconomic advocacy, and the integration of cutting-edge science and technology into clinical practice.
