Cancer Innovations and Hope Focus of “Medical Advances” TV Series

March 18, 2008

The Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center sponsored an hour-long program highlighting the newest cancer treatments and others just on the horizon as part of the ongoing Medical Advances series on WKRN-Channel 2. “Medical Advances: Cancer Innovations and Hope for the Future” aired on the local ABC affiliate on Tuesday, March 25, at 7 p.m. and again on Saturday, March 29, at 12:30 p.m.

“Cancer is a frightening and life-changing experience,” said Cynthia Manley, Vanderbilt-Ingram’s associate director for communications. “With this program, we want not only to show that there is progress being made against this disease but also to offer guidance for folks looking for their best options when they do face that diagnosis.”

The program was produced by Silvia Casteneda and features interviews with cancer survivors, clinicians, and researchers. It is part of a Vanderbilt Medical Center-sponsored information series that has also highlighted asthma and allergies, diabetes and deep-brain stimulation for Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor and dystonia.
