HealthLeaders Media

The oncology “community” is apparently jumping at the chance to show support for documentary filmmaker Ken Burns’ latest PBS project — a 6-hour film examining the history of cancer.

Genentech, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Siemens, Cancer Treatment Centers of America, the American Cancer Society, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and the American Association for Cancer Research — have either helped bankroll or support the production and/or the publicity effort around the film, titled “Cancer: the Emperor of All Maladies.”
