Dr. Michael Chang on Cancering Podcast EP14

Who would have believed when we launched The Cancering Show over a year ago that we'd be talking about a real-life pandemic during Season 2? For cancer patients, either in treatment or after treatment, it's a really scary time. And social distancing sure makes all of our lives even more complicated. On this episode, Dr. JYP talks with Dr. Michael Chang, the chief medical officer for USA Health. He gives us his unique perspective on COVID-19, where we are with the vaccine, and his thoughts on preventative screenings for those with cancer and other chronic conditions.

Key Takeaways:

- Hospitals have been highly effective in ensuring that they are safe from spreading COVID-19 infections to their patients and staff.

- Make sure you are getting your cancer screening tests, making all physician and follow-up visits and going to the hospital for any immediate health issues and complications.

- Preventing health issues is much easier than dealing with a problem once it has run its course.
