How Medicine (Mis)treats Cancer

We have lost the war on cancer. We spend $150 billion each year treating it, yet a patient with cancer is as likely to die of it today as one was fifty years ago. Why has so little progress been made in diagnosing and treating cancer over the past few decades? How can physicians, researchers and patients advocate for more effective research and humane treatments? Join us for a conversation with Dr. Azra Raza, a world-class oncologist and author of The First Cell: And the Human Costs of Pursuing Cancer to the Last. Hear her deeply personal examination of cancer and learn how we can - and must - do better.
