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.

WCLK and our partners at the Center For Cancer Research and Therapeutic development are mourning the loss of our friend and  courageous advocate for prostate cancer awareness Ralph C. T. Franklin.  On Sunday, October 13, Franklin died from complications due to prostate cancer.  He was 62.  

Join WCLK this evening at 6pm or on demand here to hear Your Health Connection as we discuss prostate cancer.  September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.  JaQuitta Williams is our host, and is a cancer survivor herself.  She's joined by Ralph C. T. Franklin, a prostate cancer survivor, and Dr. Walter Falconer, a urologist.  They'll take phone calls live and also take questions via Twitter @jaquittaw and @CCRTD.

If you missed Wednesday's  premiere of the new season of Your Health Connection with Jaquitta Williams on WCLK, you can listen to it again, here, on demand.
