I chose the field of oncology because I want to help patients through one of the most difficult experiences a person can have. Cancer treatment requires a team approach involving the patient, medical oncologist, nurses and support staff, as well as other medical teams such as radiation oncology and surgery who are often part of a patient's care. I work with patients to help them understand the overall treatment plan – especially the role of chemotherapy in the treatment of their disease – and support them throughout the course of treatment. I am optimistic about the future of cancer treatment and want to work towards finding new and better treatment strategies for lung and head and neck cancers through the development of our clinical trials program. We currently have several clinical trials evaluating the role of immunotherapy for the treatment of metastatic head and neck cancers open for enrollment, as well as other clinical trials focused on answering important questions regarding the management of these diseases.
