As you can see from the graphic above, we’re quite busy during the average three-day period at MSK. We’re constantly on the move, making sure we meet all our patients’ needs — from the physical (that’s a lot of meals!) to the emotional (nothing beats a Caring Canine) and everything in between. Our scientists are also working behind the scenes on treatment innovations to improve and extend our patients’ lives.
As you’ll learn from the new PBS documentary Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies, presented by esteemed filmmaker Ken Burns, the reality of cancer care has changed dramatically through the years. We’re proud of the contributions we’ve made as the world’s oldest and largest cancer center, and excited to play a major part in continuing to shape the future of the disease and in improving care for our patients, who are at the center of all we do.
Keep an eye out for the MSK experts featured in Emperor and know that while you watch, we’ll be hard at work!
