MD Anderson looking to provide cancer treatment in San Antonio | SAN ANTONIO XYZ | Scoop.it
The University of Texas Health Science Center has launched discussions with MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston to explore ways to expand cancer services in San Antonio, an executive vice chancellor confirmed today.
