This story is a marketing coup for a hospital, but its relevance to most cancer patients is unclear. This story failed on costs and on context, cheerleading for an approach that lacks evidence.
Andrew Holtz, former CNN-er, and past president of the Association of Health Care Journalists, was one of the reviewers of this piece. He recently joined the HealthNewsReview.org team of reviewers. I mention this because sometimes readers may wonder if the story reviewers have journalism – and, in this case, TV journalism experience. Between Andrew and me, we have more years (30+) of such experience than we may care to remember.
