AYA Clinical Trials
Are you interested in helping doctors and scientists understand cancer in teens and young adults?
Clinical trials are research studies in which people help doctors find ways to improve health and cancer care. Each study tries to answer scientific questions and to find better ways to prevent, diagnose, or treat cancer.
The AYA program has a team member coordinating research, Rebecca Block, M.S.W., Ph.D. Currently she has opportunities available in a study of how cancer affects teens’ and young adults’ quality of life and how young cancer patients make decisions about fertility (having children). The AYA program also has other clinical trials.
