Yesterday, the first question the Employment and Insurance panel was asked at the OMG! Cancer Summit was "Can you address some of the pertinent issues surrounding the job search process for the young adult cancer population?" Laura Mosiello (from CancerCare), Joanna Morales (from the Cancer Legal Resource Center) and I all had plenty of thoughts on the topic. Rather than paraphrase, I thought I would share this video clip. The visual quality is low despite the mighty efforts of the flip camera wielding Alice McKenney but the sound is excellent. Down the road a high quality version of the entire conference will be available for viewing but for those of you who need this information now, I didn't want to wait.
