Listen in as Alicia and Lizette from The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) chat with John F. Gerecitano, MD, PhD, Clinical Director of Lymphoma Outpatient Services at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Margaret (Peg) McCormick, RN, BSN, MA, Consultant, Clinical Trials Support Center. Hear about the role clinical trials play in cancer treatment, who can participate in a clinical trial and how participants are protected, how LLS’s Clinical Trial Support Center assists patients in finding a trial that is right for them, and why it is important to think of clinical trials as a possible treatment option instead of a last resort.
