Resource Education Center (REC)

The Resource and Education Center (REC) is a patient and family learning center.

We offer accurate information you can trust to all Fox Chase patients and their families, people at high-risk, staff, and the public. Our staff is here to help you learn more about cancer risk, prevention, screening and treatment, like clinical trials. If you need support services, we can also refer you to other Fox Chase departments and programs or to local and national organizations.
