twipo #65 - Interview with dr. brenda weigel*
In this podcast, co-Hosts Dr. Robyn Dennis and Dr. Ryan Roberts had the honor of interviewing Dr. Brenda Weigel, Director of the Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Weigel discusses her “serendipitous” background story of how she became involved in childhood oncology, as well as talks about the challenges the field faces with managing new cancer therapies. But, despite the challenges, she is hopeful that we are moving away from chemotherapy treatments into an era of cancer therapies that “hopefully, has the potential to cure the cancers and improve the quality of life”.
