Our research can help improve the health, medical care and quality of people’s lives. Some examples include:
- New drugs or therapies to help treat childhood cancer and other illnesses.
- New ways to do surgery that are safer and help the body to heal more quickly.
- New technology that helps find childhood cancer and other illnesses sooner.
Taking part in a clinical trial
Being a part of clinical research is always voluntary. Your child does not have to take part in a clinical research study to be treated at the Aflac Cancer Center.
Your choice will not affect how the Aflac Cancer Center staff feels about or treats you or your child. Your child will still get the same quality of care.
Talk with your child, your child’s doctor, your family members and others before deciding to take part in research. Find a clinical trial.
