Dogs are Cancer Scientists with Paws

Learn why clinical trials for dogs and people are the most promising path to treating and ultimately curing cancers, with Colorado State University's Dr. Christine Hardy, DVM.

Join us as we learn why clinical trials for dogs and people are the most promising path to treating and ultimately curing cancers, when we talk with Colorado State University's Dr. Christine Hardy, DVM.

In her role as Director of Operations and Development for CSU's Flint Animal Cancer Center, Dr. Hardy is getting the word out about "One Cure," an initiative to share the importance of participating in clinical trials when animals and humans are diagnosed with cancer.

Dr. Hardy tells us "I am very proud to be full time back at the FACC as of January 2015 and oversee Operations and Development,,,and couldn’t be more honored to be a part of our team where we strive to make a difference for all cancer patients."

Also joining us is Dr. Kristen Weishaar, a board-certified oncologist and the Flint Animal Cancer Center's Director of Clinical Trials. Dr. Weishaar earned her DVM from Tufts University in Massachusetts and became board-certified at Colorado State in 2014. Dr. Weishaar is excited to play a role in finding new treatments for animals and people with cancer through clinical research.

We will Learn:

- What exactly are clinical trials?
- Why are clinical trials so important for treating and even curing cancer.
- How do people and dogs benefit from participating?
- What are the pitfalls of taking part?
- And so much more!

Learn more about the One Cure Initiative at CSU.
