Cancer Today just published my story about cancer care in Nepal: http://cancertodaymag.org/Summer2012/Pages/cancer-in-nepal.aspx
The article reveals a very different perspective on what it means to have cancer and what constitutes adequate care. It’s interesting, too, that the story is in print just days after Obama’s Healthcare Law was upheld by the Supreme Court. A look at what happens when cancer care is, blatently, tiered according to who’s able to pay sheds light on the need for a better system not only abroad in places like Nepal, but also in the U.S.
On a somewhat related note, we held the second Street Smarts event yesterday at Cooper Green. It was a great success, so stay tuned for photos from the day!
