Levine Children's Hospital
/

In recent years, Charlotte's Levine Children's Hospital has embarked on notable research in pediatric cancers and clinical trials and treatment for children with cancer. The hospital is poised to make considerable gains in cancer research in the next few years in spite of the lack of funding that children's cancer research receives compared to adult cancers. Join us to talk about the work being done in cancer research for kids in Charlotte, and about the struggle to fund these important ventures, when Charlotte Talks.

Guests
Dr. Daniel McMahon
- Director of inpatient hematology/oncology services at Levine Children’s Hospital
Diane Restaino - President and Founder of the Joedance Film Festival. (Mother of a pediatric cancer patient who lost his battle with bone cancer in 2010)
