Yale Cancer Center Answers: A New Weekly Radio Progam on WNPR

New Haven, Conn. Yale Cancer Center is proud to announce the launch of a weekly program, Yale Cancer Center Answers on WNPR Connecticut Public Radio. Beginning on National Cancer Survivors Day , June 3, the radio program will air from 6:00 to 6:30 p.m. on Sunday evenings and feature the latest information on cancer care.

Co-hosts Edward Chu, M.D. and Ken Miller, M.D.

Cancer Answers is co-hosted by Edward Chu, M.D., deputy director and chief of medical oncology at Yale Cancer Center, and Ken Miller, M.D., director of the Connecticut Challenge Survivorship Clinic at the Center. Each week they will be joined by a different cancer specialist, bringing the innovation and expertise of Yale Cancer Center to all of Connecticut.

Cancer Answers was created to provide patients and their families with help and hope to sustain them in their fight against cancer, Miller explained. The help comes from experts at Yale Cancer Center who are working to develop new and better treatments. The hope comes from our doctors, nurses and staff whose knowledge and compassion are helping to win the battle against cancer, one patient at a time.

Myths, facts and advances in cancer diagnosis and treatment will be discussed, with a different focus each week. Nationally acclaimed specialists in various types of cancer research, diagnosis and treatment discuss common misconceptions about the disease and respond to questions from the community.

The central component of Yale Cancer Centers mission is education and outreach to the residents in the State, said Yale Cancer Center Director Richard L. Edelson, M.D. The weekly radio broadcast of Cancer Answers on WNPR provides a unique resource for cancer patients and their families to learn about the latest clinical advances available to them. We are extremely pleased to be able to offer this new program and bring hope to so many of our neighbors.
