Top Docs Radio features healthcare providers and professionals sharing their expertise to “Get the Word Out” about a variety of health problems, treatments and community concerns to elevate our community’s well-being.
THIS WEEK’S TOPIC:
“You have cancer” is one of the most frightening statements a person can hear. This week we meet four ladies who have travelled the challenging journey of diagnosis, treatment and survival of breast cancer. They’re here to tell us about support resources available that you might not be aware of, that can help someone you know and love get assistance that can make their experience a little (or a lot) better. Make sure to share this show with folks you know. You just might make a difference in their situation.
The host of Top Docs Radio is Charles “CW” Hall with Hyperbaric Physicians of Georgia.
