In this week’s episode of Adventure Ted Chats, we sit down with Dr. Carol L. Shields, Chief of the Ocular Oncology Service at Wills Eye Hospital and Professor of Ophthalmology at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. Dr. Shields shares her remarkable journey of her transformation of a college basketball star to continuing medical school to treat pediatric cancer and educate families on detecting cancer in their children.

Join us as  Dr. Shields discusses her personal experiences with pediatric cancer patients, the challenges faced with screening for retinoblastoma, and how families can detect if their child is at risk for retinoblastoma.

This candid conversation is part of our series that delves into pivotal moments in the lives of remarkable individuals, exploring the wisdom gained from those experiences and how they shaped their current paths.
