AWARE for All provides a platform for meaningful dialogue to engage our diverse communities and promote an understanding of available treatment options so people can make well-informed decisions," explained Dr. Karen Winkfield, Director of Hematologic Radiation Oncology at Massachusetts General Hospital.
