Adult vs Pediatric Perspectives on the Treatment of Hodgkin Lymphoma: An Oxford Debate

Presentation Description:
Hodgkin Lymphoma affects both adults and children, but the approach to its treatment varies quite dramatically between these two populations. In this debate-style session, two pediatric oncology experts and two adult oncology specialists squared off to discuss their respective approaches to the treatment of Hodgkin Lymphoma, in the hopes of shedding new light on what the pediatric oncology community can learn from the adult oncologists who battle this disease, and vice versa.
