Dr. Hy Muss, medical oncologist and Director of the Geriatric Oncology Program at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, is both a renowned expert in breast cancer and among the world’s leading luminaries on the important topic of cancer care in older patients.  Though many times it’s young celebrities with breast or other cancer who gather the attention of the media, in truth cancer is a disease that still disproportionately affects older people.  Much of the cancer in the real world of our oncology clinics is elderly patients, who are also understudied in our research relative to their importance as a population.

Dr. Muss was kind enough to sit down with our own very excellent Dr. Jared Weiss, also at UNC-Chapel Hill, to do a slide-based presentation of the leading important points on breast cancer in older women. Here’s the first part of that presentation, including video and audio versions of the podcast, along with the associated transcript and figures.
