OncoLink Blogs

The Boss is Blogging!
Oncolink's Editor-in-Chief, James Metz, MD, has finally taken pen to paper with his often boisterously shared opinions in his first blog. Blame it on the rest of the editorial staff, yes, we have been encouraging this! We hope his opinions will start a conversation about things we see everyday, but might not really think to much about. Read his first post, Pharmacy or Tobacco Shop - You be the Judge! and post your comments.

While you are there, check out our other blogs by three cancer survivors (Alysa Cummings, Rodney Warner and Donna Lee Lista) who put their own unique spins on life after a cancer diagnosis.
