Syneos Health Podcast | Cancer: The Patient Perspective

"It's July 2022. This morning I tried to donate my kidney, this afternoon the transplant team told me that I can't, I have cancer." Words no one wants to hear. Even for a former Jeopardy! champion with degrees in molecular biology and two decades of experience in the biopharma industry, the implications of the phrase are overwhelming.

Nearly a year later, our flagship podcast host Jeff Stewart is telling his story.

Today, Nick Kenny, Chief Scientific Officer at Syneos Health, turns the tables on Jeff, interviewing him on his recent experience being diagnosed and undergoing treatment for two separate cancers. They discuss the realities today for patients like Jeff who are dealing with complex cancer diagnoses—including information overload both fake and real, and the importance of “pre-bunking”—and his newly released book, Living: Inspiration from a Father with Cancer.

At a time when regulators in our industry at large are increasingly and rightly focused on patient perspectives in drug development, and with ASCO, the single largest global gathering of about 50,000 clinical cancer experts right around the corner in early June, this is a very timely discussion.
