Dr. Freifeld on “Why I Love ID”:
“My 30+ year career in managing infections in the most vulnerable immunosuppressed cancer patients has been an incredible journey and one I would choose again! Infectious complications in this population are often complex and life-threatening, but work of diagnosing and managing those problems (and often there are multiple infectious problems involving viral, fungal and/or bacterial pathogens) is both challenging and rewarding because it so often allows patients to continue their cancer treatments despite these complicating infections. I especially love working in concert with a wonderful team of oncologists and other practitioners in the field to provide the best patient care and to improve the lives of people living with cancer. ”
