Happy Thanksgiving to everyone from the Center For Cancer Research And Therapeutic Development at Clark Atlanta University and Your Health Connection! As we get together with family and friends over the holidays and enjoy our yams and hams and pumpkin pie, maybe a little spiked eggnog, it's important to remember that eating healthy today is one way to improve your chances of being cancer-free later.
Your Health Connection on WCLK featured a timely and important discussion of triple negative breast cancer for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In a fascinating twist for listeners, our host JaQuitta Williams was also the guest survivor featured on the program. She is a survivor of this particularly tough form of the disease, which disproportionately affects young people and African Americans.
The Clark Atlanta University Community today mourns the death of Mrs. Evelyn G. Lowery (CC, '46), who died early this morning, Sept. 26. surrounded by family in her home. Mrs. Lowery suffered a stroke Sept. 18; however, doctors released her from the hospital Wednesday to be with family.
Your Health Connection is a resource for you, designed to help you find good health outcomes. The program is produced by WCLK and the Center for Cancer Research and Therapeutic Development at Clark Atlanta University.
This month, Your Health Connection takes a look at HIV-AIDS and the cancers often associated with the disease. Our guests are Dr. Vincent Bond and Rodney Love. The show airs tonight at 6pm in place of Tell Me More, and is available here for on demand listening.
