The Forgivably Canadian Dr. Joe Mikhael, Myeloma, and Justin Trudeau Clickbait
On today’s show, Dr. Joseph Mikhael, Professor of Applied Cancer Research at the TGen institute for City of Hope AND the Chief Medical Officer of the International Myeloma Foundation, an incredible nonprofit advocacy and research organization that I’ve been proud to call a partner for many many years. They’re a great group. Joe is one of the most highly coveted and requested subject matter experts and speaks at hundreds of conferences worldwide (when those used to exist) and webinars for the genomic, medical, oncologic, and patient advocate communities. He’s the James Bond – meets – Liam Neeson – meets Jason Bourne – meets – Austin Powers of all the things I just said. His key focus, which fascinates me, is understanding how factors like what country you’re born in, your socioeconomic status, and your genetic predispositions determine whether or not you enter the shit happens store of cancer. He’s also Canadian, but I forgive him. Although he does know Justin Trudeau, so I heard.
