Cardiovascular and oncology worlds combine to deliver world-class care for patient

Erika Jay is taking oral chemotherapy to manage a rare cancer diagnosis she received several years ago. Unfortunately that medication is causing cardiovascular side effects, including high blood pressure. Erika is now under the expert care of Dr. Suparna Clasen, a cardio-oncologist who specializes in caring for cancer patient's heart issues. "We are so fortunate at IU Health. We have national and internationally recognized people in cardio-oncology," said Dr. Clasen. "We're able to provide subtle and nuanced, personalized care to the patient."
