Medical professionals are coming together to discuss other methods of treatments for cancer.

Senator Bill Cassidy spoke about clinical trials on a federal level and its effects around the country.

“It pulls everyone together to have a good conversation centered around what we need to do to improve our status here when it comes to the state of Louisiana,” said Lance Barbour, La. Government Relations Director, American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACSCAN).
