Event in association with
World-famous cancer physician and researcher Dr Philip Salem argues that patients need more than knowledge to tackle the disease – they need love, care, hope, compassion and time to talk about their fears, anxieties and concerns.
Salem has used his 50 years’ experience to produce a guide to cancer that aims to empower patients and their loved ones and help them to receive the best care. He takes patients through every step of the journey from initial diagnosis and uses real patient stories to support his practical advice.
Salem is director emeritus of cancer research at Baylor/St Luke’s Episcopal Hospital in Houston and president of Salem Oncology Center. He is a former member of the White House advisory committee on health care.
This event is part of the festival’s American programme.
