Approximately 70% of people diagnosed with cancer are 65 or older, and often older adults with cancer have different needs and concerns than young adults or children. In this podcast, we will discuss new recommendations from ASCO about how doctors can assess older adults in order to ensure they get the care they need.

This podcast will be led by Dr. Arti Hurria and Dr. William Dale, two co-chairs of the expert panel that produced these recommendations.
