Living With Breast Cancer With Sisters By Choice On Your Health Connection

Your Health Connection is joined by Oncologist Dr. Karen Godette and breast cancer survivor Chermaine Axam-Wilkins for a frank discussion about the myths and realities about breast cancer in 2013.  How much is genetic?  What are the treatement and cosmetic options?  Do you use a wig or fly your new post-cancer hairdo high and tight?  You'll hear real answers to real questions that will provide you with the common-sense understanding you may need.

Your Health Connection airs the third Wednesday of each month at 6pm, in place of Tell Me More.  This edition of the program airs Wednesday, April 17 at 6pm on WCLK.

Your Health Connection is produced and supported by the National Institutes of Health and The Center for Cancer Research and Therapeutic Development at Clark Atlanta University.  You can learn more about them by clicking here.

In our Health Minute feature this month, we touch on a study that showed an intermittent low-carb diet is more effective for weight loss than an ongoing diet.  You can read that story here.
