Oregon Cancer Foundation Elects Niloo Marashi-Movassaghi to Board Presidency
The Board of Directors of the Oregon Cancer Foundation (OCF) has elected Practice Administrator Niloo Marashi-Movassaghi to hold the office of President, a one-year term. Niloo has been an active OCF board member since joining the organization in April of 2018, recently holding the office of Vice President.
“It is such an honor and pleasure to serve in this leadership position supporting local cancer patients and their families,” Niloo said. “Throughout the past decade, OCF has empowered, strengthened, and sustained those impacted by cancer in our community through educational programs, support groups, and financial assistance. All of the funds raised by OCF help patients in Lane County, which makes the Foundation unique. Since 2017 we have provided more than $350,000 in financial assistance for Lane County cancer patients.”
She continued, “We offer more than 50 educational classes each year and more than 35 support groups. And, in 2020, thanks to an incredibly generous bequest, we have added a breast cancer resource coordinator. The work we do would not be possible without the help of hundreds of volunteers and the generous financial support of our community.”

Dr. Movassaghi featured in Eugene Magazine “Health & Wellness” Fall 2012
When Dr. Kiya Movassaghi opened his cosmetic surgery practice in Eugene in 2002, there were few options available besides surgery for those looking to tighten skin in certain areas of the body and remove unwanted fat.
“The gap between surgery and no surgery was wide, and there was nothing in between,” says Movassaghi. It was with this in mind that he sought out the latest in noninvasive technologies for body contouring and skin tightening for his practice’s Ziba Medical Spa.
When Dr. Movassaghi moved into his new office at Garden Way Medical Center in 2008, he set it up to include the expanded services of Ziba Medical Spa. He was seeing patients who could benefit from ongoing skin care, patients who could benefit from post-surgical skincare, and patients who were not ready for surgery but wanted to maintain their skin. “I realized very quickly that a medical spa where I could provide these kinds of advanced skincare treatments under medical supervision was necessary,” says Movassaghi.
Ziba (“beautiful” in Persian) offers a wide spectrum of medical-grade spa treatments, including microdermabrasion, peels, laser vein treatment, and laser hair removal & cosmetic laser treatment. “Teaching our patients about great skincare and helping them maintain their skin is part of the whole program,” says practice administrator and office manager Niloo Marashi.
A recent addition to Movassaghi’s practice is Exilis, a new method to tighten loose skin anywhere on the body with no anesthesia and no downtime. “It is a very advanced technology,” says medical aesthetician Casey McNabb. “Exilis uses radiofrequency to create an intense heat that stimulates collagen repair to reduce wrinkles, treat skin laxity, and reshape your face and body.”
“I not only enjoy doing the surgery, I enjoy the artistic part of it,” says Movassaghi, a Harvard Medical School graduate who also completed his plastic surgery training there. “I see firsthand the impact that I have on people’s lives because I am changing the shape of something they carry with them their whole lives. I think that is a wonderful thing.”
