What happens when you take two people out of their comfort zone and turn the tables? Special guest Dawn Kamber, Public Affairs Director and Host of “Impact OC” is usually on the other side of the mic. Dawn interviews guests who impact Orange County in a positive way. We turned the tables when we asked Dawn to share her journey with pancreatic cancer which started with a simple media release. Even being in the media, like most, Dawn had never heard of pancreatic cancer until she heard Michael Landon had been diagnosed. Why aren’t we hearing more about the disease before reading it in the obituary? What do we need to do to get and keep pancreatic cancer in the media forefront and not just when a celebrity is involved? Why does someone who doesn’t have a personal connection with pancreatic cancer become involved? Answers to these questions and more on OC Talk Radio Orange County’s only Community Radio Station livestreaming from from UCI Beall Applied Innovation at the Cove Thursdays at 11:00am PDT
