The Axiom REACH Foundation and Rutgers University Announce A.R.G.O.S. Cohort
Axiom REACH and Rutgers University are proud to announce the Fall 2022 Axiom REACH Graduate Oncology Scholars (A.R.G.O.S.) cohort.

Future Healthcare Providers
To help improve care for the neediest cancer patients, we designed the Axiom REACH Graduate Oncology Scholars, (A.R.G.O.S.) program to provide underrepresented future healthcare providers with all of the tools and resources they need to succeed both personally and professionally in their careers with cancer patients. REACH has partnered with the Rutgers School of Health Professions and the Rutgers School of Nursing to begin this program in 2022.
History of A.R.G.O.S.
The A.R.G.O.S. was inspired by Ibrahim A., to whom in 2019, REACH awarded full tuition support for the nursing program at Americare Technical School.
Inspiration for the name A.R.G.O.S.
Axiom REACH believes that diversity is fundamental to strength and that healthcare, a guardianship of the human condition, is improved through a diversity of perspectives. The A.R.G.O.S. program is named for Ἄργος,” the many-eyed giant in Greek mythology that protects the tree of life.
