)-- CureTalks, an internet radio and video podcasting service of TrialX, features leading physicians in conversation with patients, caregivers, and patient advocates. The University of California, San Francisco Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center (HDFCCC) is the most recent institution to sign up for the CureTalks’ exclusive institutional level talk series. This UCSF video podcast series is called CureTalks@UCSFCancer and is an initiative that brings a new dimension to patient-centric care and engagement. These ongoing and archived talk series not only showcase the cutting edge research happening at UCSF, but they also provide a new channel of information between UCSF cancer researchers and the larger cancer patient community in the San Francisco area and beyond.
The recent talks in the series have featured eminent UCSF experts like Dr. Lawrence Fong
, Dr. Laura Esserman
, Dr. Eric Collisson
and Dr. Luke Gilbert
in conversation with a panel of patient advocates who are also cancer survivors and participated in clinical trials. In the talks, important questions are discussed and experiences shared on subjects ranging from immunotherapy and precision medicine to new developments in breast cancer screening. These talks hosted by Priya Menon
are informative and engaging and more importantly, they are helping HDFCCC build an archive of useful information and specialized knowledge that helps patients be their own best advocates.
The response from the audience for these talks has been overwhelmingly positive, with each garnering more than 10,000 listens within a week of the live broadcast. The talks can be viewed or listened to on curetalks.com
or on the HDFCCC website cancer.ucsf.edu/research/curetalks
Early 2020 will see CureTalks@UCSFCancer exploring research at HDFCCC on subjects including palliative care, neuro-oncology and complementary medicine. The latest information on upcoming shows is available on the CureTalks website at curetalks.com
