Treating Man and His Best Friend

On January 5, hear from oncologist Dr. John Ohlfest as he shares the story of how researchers from Veterinary Medicine and the Masonic Cancer Center joined forces on this cutting-edge treatment, and explains what it means for the health of man--and his best friend.
