On the Radio
Moffitt Cancer Center is looking for volunteers for a study on “chemo brain”— subtle but long-term changes in a cancer patient’s thinking and memory that may be a result of their treatment. But as we’ll find out on this week’s University Beat, Moffitt isn’t seeking volunteers with cancer; they need HEALTHY people to volunteer. Hear the reasons why and who exactly they want on University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
