01 Jun MELANIE PALOMARES FROM CITY OF HOPE TO DISCUSS THE IMPORTANCE OF CLINICAL TRIALS
Dr. Melanie Palomares, Assistant Professor of Medical Oncology and Staff Physician at the City of Hope, joins the Empowerment Session line up to discuss the importance of Clinical Trials in post treatment care.
Dr. Palomares earned her bachelor degree in mathematics at Boston University, and doctorate in medicine at Emory University. She did an internship and residency in Internal Medicine at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, followed by fellowships in Hematology at Harbor-UCLA, and Medical Oncology and Clinical Cancer Genetics at University of Washington. In addition to being board certified in Internal Medicine, Hematology, and Medical Oncology, Dr. Palomares has a masters degree in Epidemiology, pursued during a postdoctoral fellowship in the Cancer Prevention Research Program at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle.
This unique multidisciplinary training has led to her specialization in the care of both patients who are at increased risk for cancer (primary cancer prevention and screening) and cancer survivors (secondary cancer prevention and surveillance).
