Last month, oncologist and cancer educator Dr. Sanjay Juneja received an invitation to participate in the upcoming Healthcare Leaders in Social Media Routable Series. Requested personally by the administrative staff at The White House, the extended invitation recognizes Dr. Sanjay Juneja’s work as a respected voice in the social media space.
With over 500,000+ followers on social media, Dr. Juneja is known as ‘TheOncDoc’ across social media platforms, including Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, and Facebook. He has been featured in The Washington Post, regional news channels (PBS, CBS, NBC, NPR), and on social media for MTV, PureWow, DailyMail, and Dr. Mike.
When he is not creating educational and entertaining social media content, Dr. Juneja is working with xCures, a direct-to-patient, and direct-to-physician oncology platform, as the host of their TARGET: Cancer podcast. By focusing on innovative approaches and big ideas to deal with cancer, the podcast aims to be a helpful asset to patients and oncologists looking for new solutions. xCures’ latest podcast guest was CW’s “All American” Star Cody Christian. Cody had the opportunity to sit down recently and discuss his experience of having someone in his family deal with Cancer, story millions around the world can relate to.
Cancer remains a greatly feared diagnosis, with more than one out of every three men and women diagnosed with cancer during their lifetimes. However, current technological and medical advances allow cancer patients to live fruitful and active lives. To inform podcast listeners about the most recent cancer technology, Dr. Juneja will talk to leading experts in cancer treatment and discuss the latest solutions so that audiences worldwide can learn and understand.
Dr. Juneja was initially scheduled to be a guest on xCures’ TARGET: Cancer Podcast. As a community oncologist, he felt that xCures provided a much-needed service to cancer patients in community practices across the country and was thrilled with the opportunity to host the podcast.
“I have been active and successful on TikTok and Instagram, where I quickly realized people have a strong desire to learn more about cancer. I have often been asked to start a podcast and after speaking to Mika Newton and learning more about xCures, I felt I needed to do this,” said Dr. Juneja. “I have always believed in the importance of educating people about cancer, and this podcast is a great way of doing it.”
“Sanjay’s energy and desire to educate is inspiring,” said Mika Newton, CEO of xCures. “I am super excited that he is taking over as our host and can’t wait to see what he has in store.”
Previous TARGET: Cancer podcast episodes featured interviews with medical professionals and stories from other cancer patients. Future TARGET: Cancer podcasts will continue to be highly educational - it is the podcast where technology meets oncology. Now hosted by Dr. Juneja, the TARGET: Cancer podcast will have its own YouTube Channel and can be listened to on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.
