Poverty and Childhood Cancer Outcomes: A Novel Intervention Target [Video]

One in six children diagnosed with cancer in the United States lives in poverty, and despite uniform treatment in clinical trials, poverty-exposed children are more likely to relapse compared to children who are not exposed to poverty. Dana-Farber Cancer Institute seeks to improve childhood cancer outcomes by investigating poverty as a risk factor for relapse and developing novel poverty-targeted interventions. Listen to a presentation from Dana-Farber’s Kira Bona, MD, MPH, about her lab’s work to identify and alleviate poverty-associated outcome disparities in childhood cancers. The event is hosted by Joanne Wolfe, MD, MPH.

World Pancreatic Cancer Day is observed on the third Thursday of November, every year. [Video]

World Pancreatic Cancer Day is on the third Thursday of November every year — this year, it falls on November 18, and we’re here to show you how to observe this day. It has been almost 10 years since this day was observed for the first time to raise awareness that pancreatic cancer is one of the toughest cancers. This day allows communities to come together to raise awareness and support the people battling pancreatic cancer.In 1858, Jacob Mendez Da Costa, an American physician, studied Giovanni’s work, conducted the first microscopic evaluation of adenocarcinoma (later named pancreatic cancer), and identified it as a true disease. In 1898, Alessandro Codivilla, an Italian surgeon, operated on a tumor in the pancreas; however, the patient did not survive. William Stewart Halsted from Johns Hopkins Hospital did the first successful resection of cancer.#PancreaticCancerDay #November #OnThisDay
