Elizabeth Loggers, MD, PhD, lost her paternal grandmother to cancer long before she was born, but she saw how the experience affected her father even years later. “This awareness drove me to become a medical oncologist, both to cure cancer, and to ensure the experience of having cancer could be transformative in a positive way for both patients and families,” Dr. Loggers said. “Patients and families often find there is little or no good information about rare cancers. They need expert help that they can trust to help them find the best cancer care for their individual needs.”
Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) is part of the Pacific Northwest’s only National Cancer Institute-recognized comprehensive cancer center and has a nationally recognized, multidisciplinary Sarcoma Clinic.
“I feel honored to work with such professional and thoughtful experts, including Drs. Chappie Conrad, Darin Davidson, Gabrielle Kane, Edward Kim, Seth Pollack, and Ben Hoch, as well as our colleagues at Seattle Children’s Hospital,” Dr. Loggers said. “In addition to offering well-coordinated, highly experienced sarcoma care, we are developing and testing new treatments to improve survival for patients.”
Dr. Loggers divides her time between doing research as an assistant member in the Clinical Research Division at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and seeing patients at SCCA where she serves as the medical director for the Sarcoma Clinic and Palliative Care. Her area of expertise is the care and treatment of adult bone and soft tissue sarcomas.
In 2014, Dr. Loggers was recognized as an "Outstanding Healthcare Practitioner" Silver Award from Seattle Business Magazine.
When she isn’t working, Dr. Loggers enjoys spending time with her daughters and husband. She also likes to cook, hike, camp, and kayak as time allows.
