Cancer Conversations Episode 37
Historically, cancer treatment has been offered through one-size-fits-all therapies based on the average person. On this episode of Cancer Conversations on Talking FACS, Dr. Jill Kolesar shares how that is changing as we learn more about cancer and why it occurs. She discusses how precision medicine, treatment that takes into account each patient’s individual genetics, environment and lifestyle to find a tailored therapy that works for their specific cancer, is changing cancer care in Kentucky.
Cancer Conversations on Talking FACS is a partnership project between Family and Consumer Sciences Extension and the Markey Cancer Center.
