Nearly 150,000 people are diagnosed each year with colorectal cancer.
This month is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness month – and people all over the country are talking about colorectal cancer.
This month, on March 11, we're reminded of the fact that it is a year ago that the coronavirus ‘crisis’ officially became a ‘pandemic, – drastically changing our lives - from wearing masks to limiting visits with friends and family and working or learning from home. And while the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued guidance on getting tested and today a number of vaccines are available to help protect us… there are still many questions about the impact of COVID-19 on different populations, including children.
In this episode of Physician’s Weekly:
- Paul Schmidt talks with Perri Klass, MD, Professor of Journalism and Pediatrics, at New York University, about the need for pediatric vaccines to protect children - and all of us - against the coronavirus;
- Peter Hofland, Ph.D. talks with two gastroenterologists, Naresh T. Gunaratnam, M.D. of Huron Gastroenterology in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and Lisa Mathew, MD of South Denver Gastroenterology in Lone Tree, Colorado about colorectal cancer and what can be done to prevent the disease;
- Rachel Giles, MD talks with Daniel A. Doherty, MD, Ph.D. from the University of Washington/Children's Hospital and Regional Medical Center, Department of Pediatrics, in Seattle, Washington, about the impact of COVID-19 on Children with special needs.
