In this Fight Back episode, we welcome our special guest, Dr. Brad Pollock, to discuss childhood and young adult cancers. Dr. Pollack is a Distinguished Professor of Epidemiology, Chairman of the Department of Public Health Sciences, and Associate Dean for Public Health Sciences at the University of California (UC) Davis School of Medicine. He is also the Principal Investigator of the Children’s Oncology Group at the National Cancer Institute Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) and a leading researcher on the epidemiology and control of childhood and adolescent cancers.

He joins us to talk about how cancer is not just an older person’s disease, the types of cancers that strike children and young adults, the research that goes into finding effective treatment options and identifying causes of cancers, the long-term health outcomes for those who have cancer at a young age, and more.
