Welcome to OncLive On Air®! I’m your host today, Ashling Wahner.
OncLive On Air® is a podcast from OncLive®, which provides oncology professionals with the resources and information they need to provide the best patient care. In both digital and print formats, OncLive® covers every angle of oncology practice, from new technology to treatment advances to important regulatory decisions.
In today’s episode, we had the pleasure of speaking with Allison C. Rosenthal, DO, a hematologist, internist, and oncologist in the Department of Hematology at Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona, about the care of adolescent and young adult (AYA) patients with Hodgkin lymphoma.
In our exclusive interview, Dr Rosenthal discussed the discrepancies between pediatric and adult oncologists that result in differing treatment approaches for Hodgkin lymphoma across patients aged 15 to 39 years; common concerns these patients have as they navigate their diagnosis and treatment alongside other life changes, such as pursuing higher education, becoming financially independent, or starting families; and how AYA patients are particularly affected by a lack of accessible, affordable health care and awareness of clinical trials.
That’s all we have for today! Thank you for listening to this episode of OncLive On Air®. Check back on Mondays and Thursdays for exclusive interviews with leading experts in the oncology field.
