In this video series, presented in April of 2020, GRACE Faculty and Members of the Board of Directors have a candid discussion regarding cancer and Covid 19.
In this time of social distancing and limiting clinic exposure, Dr. H. Jack West, Dr. Jared Weiss and Dr. Ben Levy 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 four part series, we discuss testing, ongoing cancer treatment, and many other issues relating to a cancer diagnosis in the middle of a pandemic.
- Part 1 - Should cancer patients get tested even if they show no symptoms?
- Part 2 - Do cancer patients have a higher risk for Covid 19?
- Part 3 - What preventive measures are trustworthy?
- Part 4 - Is the standard of care changing for cancer patients because of the pandemic?
