Here’s what you need to know about PathologyOutlines.com this week:
1. Worldwide Directory of Pathologists Ambassadors
Do you want to promote the pathologists at your institution? If so, consider becoming a Directory Ambassador! As Ambassador, you help ensure that the Directory includes all practicing pathologists for your institution and otherwise assist in making the Directory as accurate as possible. Ambassadors can be residents, fellows, faculty or staff, can split the work with other ambassadors and don’t have to review all the pathologists at the same time. Ambassadors are not paid but are listed on this page, get a gift at the time of the annual USCAP meeting and are appreciated by pathologists at their institution for helping promote their work.
2. Curing Cancer Network: How Cancer Kills
We have updated our essay, How Cancer Kills. See an excerpt below:
“Our strategic plan aims to reduce U.S. cancer deaths from 600,000 (projected cancer deaths in 2022) to 100,000 per year. To reach this ambitious goal, we must better understand how cancer actually kills people. This essay proposes that cancer often kills indirectly by promoting marked physiologic disruptions in life’s essential networks; however, physicians can prevent these deaths by correcting the network changes even before the cancer itself is treated. In addition, advanced cancer kills by creating a sense of futility, which causes individuals and the medical system to give up the fight.”
