Dr Beck Bergin on early onset bowel cancer and consumer involvement in research

Makala Castelli and Terri Byrne are joined by Dr Beck Bergin, a Research Fellow at Cancer Council Victoria, to chat about early onset bowel cancer and the importance of consumer involvement in research. This episode covers:
  • Makala‚Äôs diagnosis with bowel cancer
  • Why young people are not seeking help when they experience symptoms of bowel cancer
  • Challenges for rural cancer patients
  • The recommended bowel-screening age in Australia vs. the U.S.
  • How people who have had cancer can actively contribute to research
A note from PC4: Consumers are the most important part of our vision and their contribution is integrated into every aspect of our work. To make sure we achieve this vision PC4 has a Community Network of people interested or affected by cancer. This network helps us develop new cancer in primary care research. If you are interested in joining our Community Network please fill out this form. You can participate at many levels based on your interest and availability.
