Personal Statement

Lowell Anthony listens to Geri's heart during a followup visit.

It takes a village to treat cancer, so when the patient is initially evaluated at Markey Cancer Center, a care plan is developed across specialties. So it's more encompassing than just a single visit to one specialist who treats cancer. Right now in oncology, the most exciting development is immunotherapy. Our challenge is to find out how we integrate this into other forms of how we treat cancer; both from other medicine, other drugs and potentially other modalities such as radiation.
