Cancer and Aging
Patricia Ganz, MD, UCLA Professor, medical oncologist, researcher and Director of Cancer Prevention & Control Research, presents emerging information about how cancer treatments may cause symptoms that are commonly associated with aging. In other words, is your cancer treatment making you feel older? She will highlight what we do and do not know, and how cancer patients and survivors can take action to counteract the potential effects of treatment-associated accelerated aging.
