Sound Waves Episode 7 - Dr Dave Hobin

Dr Dave Hobin joins Scott in our season finale to talk COVID-19 and lockdown, and their impact on young people with cancer and in recovery

As the Trust prepares to launch its summer activities for 2020, we talk to Dr Dave Hobin, Trustee and medical advisor to the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust, about why young people need our support now more than ever.

As consultant paediatric oncologist at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, Dave has been on the front lines over the last few months. He’s also the chair of TYAC, which is the UK’s professional association for those involved in the treatment, care and support of teenagers and young adults with cancer.

He chats to Scott about how cancer treatment has adapted since the start of the pandemic and how lockdown has affected young people in recovery.
