In Episode 45, Quinn & Brian discuss the showdown you’ve all been waiting for: Poop Vs. Cancer.
Our guest is Dr. Diwakar Davar, a Professor of Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh and a medical oncologist/hematologist. Dr. Davar specializes in the management of advanced melanoma and the development of early phase studies to test novel immunotherapeutic approaches to treat advanced cancers.
As it turns out, most of us don’t have shit figured out. But when you think about the geniuses doing this kind of world-changing work, it makes you just want to divert every resource in the world, all the aircraft carrier money, to support their cause. So if you have aircraft carrier money to divert, we have something to share with you. And if you don’t, you can still listen and get pumped for some positive changes on the horizon.
