If cancer treatments are starting to cost a half-million dollars each, how can society afford them and what will happen if you need one? Where can you expect to see the most progress toward cancer treatments and how soon? Can there be “a cure” for cancer?
Join Carey Goldberg, host of CommonHealth, for our first WBUR On Tap event of the year, for a discussion about where cancer research and care are headed, as wrap-up to our "This Moment in Cancer" series.
She will be joined by William Hahn, medical oncologist and chair of the Executive Committee for Research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Mara Bloom, executive director of the Mass. General Cancer Center, who oversees its clinical and research operations.
This event is free and open to the public but advance registration is required.
