Receiving a cancer diagnosis can be terrifying for both the person who is diagnosed and their family, but having the proper information at your disposal can make navigating the medical system much less intimidating. That’s why we’re hosting a presentation that will give you the tools to advocate for the care you or your loved one desires.
Compassion & Choices will host an informational presentation by Dr. John Laszlo, MD, former director of clinical programs at Duke Cancer Center and national VP for Research of the American Cancer Society.
Dr. Laszlo’s presentation is titled The Person with Cancer and the Family: Questions, Options, Resources, and Care. While at Duke, Dr. Laszlo authored Understanding Cancer, an important piece of medical literature describing what cancer is, how to seek treatment, and how to best talk about cancer with your doctors.
