Description

The James "Rhio" O'Connor Memorial Scholarship is open to undergraduate and graduate students at colleges / universities in the United States. To be considered, you must submit an essay on the use of alternative medical approaches in the treatment of cancer. Some suggested topics for your essay are: Why are alternative therapies used by cancer patients when they are not FDA approved? Should cancer patients and doctors be able to use whatever treatments they like in treating cancer? Should medicinal medicine and folk knowledge have any relevancy in cancer? It is estimated that it costs over $400 million to bring a new cancer drug to market. Does that establish roadblocks for the testing and approval of alternative therapies?
