2. Dr. Pernick’s Curing Cancer Blog
Dr. Pernick’s next short essay in his “Curing Cancer” blog series can be read here. To cure adult cancers, he suggests emulating our success with curing cancer in children and young adults by using even larger numbers of combinations of treatments and enrolling more patients in clinical trials. Email comments or questions to NatPernick@gmail.com.
3. Secure Website
Our website is now secure. While this is not terribly significant since we don’t collect information from our website’s visitors, the “not secure” flags may be off-putting for some people. It took us 2 years to make the switch because we needed to inspect 40K+ images and links and correct them if they were associated with unsecure websites. We are working on a few pages that still may be unsecured so feel free to notify Dr. Pernick at Nat@PathologyOutlines.com if you have any follow-up questions or comments.
4. What’s New This Week
We have a new short video, This Week At PathologyOutlines.com, posted on our homepage and on our YouTube channel. We also have a text summary in the description box of the YouTube video if you are in a hurry.
