Arizona Hematology Oncology Club
Cancer has become one of the leading causes of death in the world. As future doctors, we will all get to work and interact with cancer patient on some level. It is important for us to understand the different aspects of the disease and to know how to approach such experiences. While it might look like this club is geared towards students that are interested in hematology and oncology, others might find some of our activities beneficial for them as well. We plan on incorporating more patient centered lunch talks and possibly some volunteering activities.
Some of our current activities include lunch talks, bake sales and Relay for life. We are currently trying to come up with more activities and different ways to get involved in our local community and cancer prevention.
