#DubaiToday Eye on Health: World Cancer Day & General Clinic with Dr. Bland

It was World Cancer Day this week and Helen Farmer welcomes Professor Sadir Al Rawi, Director of Oncology Services at Al Zahra Hospital in studio to discuss the real treatment options and the latest developments relating to the disease.

Nearly every family in the world is touched by cancer, which is now responsible for almost one in six deaths globally. But the outlook for treatment is positive with new research and medications and alternatives to chemotherapy becoming available. We will be speaking about these developments with Professor Rawi.

In the second hour we welcome back Dr Gordon Bland from Mediclinic in Dubai Mall for a general clinic. We will be talking about the recent influx of flu in the region and across the globe and the doctor will be on hand to answer all and any of your health questions.
