Promise and Progress - Introducing the Scout, Your Guide to Pediatric Oncology
Introducing the Scout, Your Guide to Pediatric Oncology
Date: June 1, 2004
On this site, we cover the basics such as how to make an appointment and prepare for a visit to Johns Hopkins, provide general information about childhood and adolescent cancers, and introduce you to our clinical programs and our many support services for patients and families. But, we also survey new territory, like clinical trials, the latest information on pediatric oncology research advances, events and other news.
We understand that the diagnosis of cancer is difficult for children and their families and want them to know that while our pediatric oncology program is world famous for research and treatment discoveries, providing personalized care for each patient is just as important. The Scout is just one of the many ways we are meeting this goal.
