Breast Cancer Update with Dr. Elisa Krill-Jackson

I’ve filmed this presentation at the Oncology Symposium 2019 in Hollywood, FL. It’s about advances in breast cancer treatments over the last year. Please excuse the audio quality, she was the first speaker of the day and we were still figuring things out so early in the morning.

Dr. Krill-Jackson is a practicing Hematologist & Oncologist in Miami Beach, FL. Dr. Krill-Jackson graduated from University of Michigan Medical School in 1990 and has been in practice for 28 years. She completed a residency at Brigham & Women’s Hospital.

Dr. Krill-Jackson also specializes in Internal Medicine and Oncology. She currently practices at Mount Sinai Comprehensive Cancer Center.

The Super Survivor YouTube Channel and Podcast

Great news everyone: I’ve just started a band new YouTube channel dedicated to this project. Although my main channel is thriving, I felt that the cancer related content deserves a dedicated place because it’s unrelated to 3D tutorials or tech reviews.

The new channel will feature lectures I’ve recorded as well as coverage of Karen’s Oncology Symposiums, featuring a wealth of information that deserves to be shared.

But that’s not all: while YouTube has the largest audience out of all services out there, it’s sometimes beneficial to listen to the information as it’s presented, be that on a walk in the park, a lengthy commute, or a boring flight. Hence, all content will be available as audio versions in the podcast feed.

You can subscribe to the service via these services, using your favorite podcast client:

This is part of a larger content reorganization strategy I’m currently working on, with more longer term projects coming into my life. I’ll talk more about this in an upcoming post.

2nd Annual Oncology Symposium 2019

I streamed this event live from the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, back in April 2019. I totally forgot to put it on this site (like so many other things and videos that I’ve posted on YouTube already).

This was a one-day speaker event (including myself), about Empowering Professionals and Advancing Evidence-Based Strategies in Cancer Care.

My CT Scan – June 2019

In this episode I’m showing you my CT Scan I had at Pinnacle Imaging in June 2019 (so that’s two months before I’m making this video). I don’t know much about what’s in those images, but I’ll try my best to talk you through the interface and what those grey blobs (might) mean. Bottom line is: I’m healthy – that’s all that counts 🙂

Don’t Be Afraid To Suck

A reminder to all of us that making mistakes isn’t a bad thing at all, quite the opposite: it’s an opportunity for growth and to get better. Our endeavour to be “perfect” all the time and not make mistakes may well be the cause for limited growth.
