Cancer Research & Treatment
You may think cancer is something that happens to other people. But the reality is 1 in 3 U.S. adults have a chance of developing cancer in their lifetime. And it's projected that by 2030 the number of new cancer cases will increase by nearly 50% and cancer will outrank heart disease as the nation's top killer.
We'll explore advances in cancer treatment and how they are impacting patient care. For example, doctors are now using more precise drugs to tailor treatment to an individual patient, in addition to the usual arsenal of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. We'll also learn about what it means to be in a clinical trial, and why some doctors now prescribe exercise to their patients, like it's a drug.
