By Corbin B.P. Dodge
Dr. Stacey Berg, Director of Clinical Research for Texas Children’s Cancer Center, recently became certified in Hospice and Palliative Medicine, a specialty that focuses on relieving the pain and suffering associated with serious illnesses as well as on providing end-of-life care.
As the head of the Developmental Therapeutics Program at Texas Children’s Cancer Center, Dr. Berg works to develop new cancer-fighting therapies. At the same time, she emphasizes that it is critical to provide comfort to children suffering from cancer and the side effects of its treatment.
Dr. Berg is looking forward to further incorporating the principles of palliative care into her oncology practice and to helping develop the Palliative Care Program at Texas Children’s Cancer Center.
