Dr. Shanique Palmer on Targeted Therapy

Shanique Palmer, MD, a hematologist/oncologist with the Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group, cares for Kaiser Permanente members. She highlights that we offer our members targeted therapy as part of our cancer treatment program. Targeted therapy uses medicines to attack specific targets or processes of cancer cells. Unlike chemotherapy or radiation treatment, targeted therapy affects only the cancer cells and not the other cells in the body.
