The Mass General Cancer Center is excited to launch its second season of public service announcements on 98.5 The Sports Hub for the duration of the 2016-17 New England Patriots season. Go Pats!
Starting in September with the Patriots’ opening game, and as a part of our arrangement, we began airing public service announcements that broadcast throughout every Patriots’ game, and during regular programming on 98.5 The Sports Hub for the duration of the 2016-2017 season. The public service announcements feature our clinicians talking about specific cancer awareness months and the progress being made in cancer care and research.
