Presenters in this series include: Otis Brawley, MD, FACP (Oncologist), Arthur Caplan, PhD (Medical Ethicist), Constance Dennis-Bragg and Shelley Snider (Study Participant and Caregiver), Rose and Robert Gerber (Study Participant and Caregiver), Sandra Horning, MD (Oncologist), Susan Love, MD (Surgeon and Research Advocate), Dan McKellar, MD, FACS (Surgeon and American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer Chair ), Joanna Morales, Esq (Cancer Rights Attorney ), Sandra M.
