Alex Trebek, host of the long running television series, “Jeopardy,” was diagnosed this week with stage IV pancreatic cancer. This type of cancer has most likely spread to another organ such as the liver, lungs or stomach. His diagnosis is grim.
Dr. Adil Akhtar, oncologist and palliative care expert, is available for press interviews to provide commentary on this difficult type of cancer. What is suggested treatment at this stage? What could the patient be feeling with regard to symptoms?
If you are interested in speaking with Dr. Akhtar, please let me know, and I would be happy to arrange an interview.
