KUHF Conversations: Dr. John Mendelsohn

The outgoing president of the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Dr. John Mendelsohn, came to the KUHF studios this week. Dr. Mendelsohn sat down with KUHF's David Pitman to talk about the biggest change to cancer treatment in the 15 years that he lead the center.
