What is curated news?
Unlike a news aggregation service that uses automated software to scan the web for keywords, a human curator selects specific news for your needs and presents it in an interesting way. At Medical Digest Publications we focus on clinical news that patients facing a cancer diagnosis can look to as a potential treatment option they may want to ask their oncologist about. We don't spotlight laboratory or animal studies as those are likely to be years away from clinical trials.
