A year ago tomorrow, I posted my first blog post. A year and nearly 100 posts later, I maintain the same mission I started with: to empower you with scientific knowledge so that you can make more informed decisions about your health.
February 4th is World Cancer Day, and they are running a social media campaign called “Talking Hands” so that people around the world can say how they take action to help prevent and fight cancer. Besides what my biobanking team and the other clinical research teams are doing at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Barrow Neurological Institute to fight cancer, this blog is my personal contribution. I hope that in some way this helps you feel empowered to ask questions about yourself and your health, and in the case of a cancer diagnosis, feel better prepared to tackle your road ahead.
What can you do?
