Published Author on Cancer Treatment
Rosenberg authored the book “Cancer What You Need to Know: Overcome the 10 Common Mistakes Patients Make.”
One of his goals with the book was to take issues surrounding the diagnosis and treatment of cancer — particularly the medical terms and concepts — and make them easier to understand.
The book stemmed from a previous study he did that examined the websites of National Cancer Institute-Designated Cancer Centers and demonstrated their lack of readability by the general public.
“What we found looking at the information was that it was at a level that most people could not understand,” Rosenberg said. “There was a big disconnect between what we should be presenting to patients, what they can understand, versus what we’re actually writing for patients.”
Part of a Multidisciplinary Team at Moffitt
Rosenberg graduated from the Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. He completed his residency at the University of Wisconsin.
He did a medical internship at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, where he was named Intern of the Year.
Rosenberg joined the Mesothelioma Research and Treatment Center at Moffitt in 2018 after four years at the University of Wisconsin.
At Moffitt, he works with a multidisciplinary team of mesothelioma specialists, all with experience in treating this rare cancer typically caused by exposure to asbestos.
Patients at Moffitt often are eligible for clinical trials, where advances in mesothelioma treatment are being made.
Recent clinical trials have studied immunotherapy, gene therapy and targeted therapies, along with minimally invasive and robotic surgeries.
