The Bloodline Live: Emphasizing the Patient Voice in Young Adult Cancer Care

When adolescents and young adults (AYA) are diagnosed with cancer, they face unique challenges that aren’t seen as frequently in other age groups.  Healthcare and nonprofit professionals around the world are listening to patients and researching these issues to improve quality of life during and after treatment.

In this episode, we are taking you onsite to the 5th Annual Global Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Congress in Long Beach, CA. Elissa met with experts who discussed mental health, the resiliency of AYA patients when facing uncertainty, healthcare transitions and disparities, and how patients can advocate for their care.
