Dr. Edward Anders Kolb, Director of The Nemours Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Nemours Childrens Health, and Dr. Rita Meek, founder of the department and a pioneering pediatric hematologist-oncologist, discussed the progression of treatments and the improving outcomes in the battle against childhood cancer. Dr. Meek recounted her work in establishing the program 30 years ago, a novel idea at a hospital founded on orthopedic medicine. She spoke of the then revolutionary treatment plans designed for children. Dr. Kolb spoke of today’s program, Nemours enrolls more children into cancer trials than nearly any other pediatric institution and they are nationally ranked for pediatric cancer treatment. He praised the approach of Nemours and the work of the other departments that make the outcomes so encouraging, including cardiology nutrition, the nursing staff and the Child Life program that all make treatment more effective. He also discussed the research programs going on at Nemours, including bone health and other treatment-related conditions. He spoke of the ongoing battle against Sickle Cell Disease, exacerbated by decades of neglect and systemic bias in research and treatment and Nemours work in providing cutting edge treatment and holistic patient care.
