In this video series, presented in March of 2021, GRACE Board Members Dr. H. Jack West, Dr. Jared Weiss and Dr. Ben Levy have continued candid discussions regarding cancer and COVID-19.

In this continued time of social distancing and limiting clinic exposure, the doctors sat down in their respective homes to discuss some of the questions we all hear regarding these unprecedented times, and how they effect primarily cancer patients.

 

In this video the discussion is surrounding whether the COVID19 vaccine is safe for cancer patients.

 

Thanks to Exelixis and Merck for their support of this program.
