Your Health Connection

Join us  on third Wednesdays at 6pm for Your Health Connection on WCLK.

The Center for Cancer Research and Therapeutic Development (CCRTD) at Clark Atlanta University in conjuntion with the National Institutes of Health and WCLK bring you this monthly program, which will also live on this webpage when not on the air.  Your Health Connection will bring medical professionals, experts, and community advocates together to inform viewers of the most recent and up to date preventative cancer health care issues facing your community.

The Center for Cancer Research and Therapeutic Development (CCRTD) at Clark Atlanta University is comprised of a team of research scientists and student research associates devoted to significantly increasing the body of knowledge for prostate cancer research, as this disease disproportionately impacts the African American population. The Center does this through research, advocacy, community education and outreach in the battle against prostate cancer.

Your Health Connection will address prostate cancer, and cancers of all types, as well as the building blocks of good health outcomes.  Your Health Connection is on the air each month on WCLK as an hour-long radio program.  It also lives here, where you can come to listen to past radio shows on demand, and catch up on the latest health news directly from CCRTD's researchers.

Your Health Connection is designed to be useful information and does not take the place of your relationship with a licensed medical professional.

Paula Gwynn Grant is your host for the October edition of Your Health Connection on WCLK Wednesday at 6pm, as we observe National Breast Cancer Awareness month with a live, interactive program designed to answer your questions and get you up to speed on current issues regarding this disease. Paula will be joined by Board Certified Radiation Oncologist Dr. Karen Godette, as well as breast cancer survivor Jeanette Ross and advocate Anisa Palmer. They will take your calls and questions live.
