Interview: Julie Silver, MD, Assistant professor, Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Harvard Medical School

Our next guest believes it is time for cancer survivors to receive the same sort of rehabilitation that has been available for heart attack and stroke patients for decades.

Sound Medicine's Dr. David Crabb talks with Julie Silver, MD, about cancer rehabilitation. Silver, an expert in the field and a cancer survivor herself, explains why cancer rehab is so important and how it works.

Dr. Silver is working to encourage more hospitals and cancer care centers to provide rehab treatments.

Silver is an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Among her accomplishments, she founded Oncology Rehab Partners, a healthcare company offering hospitals and cancer centers tools for developing cancer rehab programs.
