COVID-19 AND CANCER
It is not easy to find a cohesive collection of relevant journal articles and rapidly changing guidelines about COVID-19 in relation to patients with cancer. Erin M. Bange, MD, is a first-year oncology fellow at Penn Medicine, a diverse clinical and research entity of the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Bange has assembled oncology-specific information into a helpful document, which IASLC will be posting as updated every few days.
