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 Wednesday evening November 20th featured an informative discussion about the Affordable Care Act and its implications for cancer detection, prevention, and treatment.
Host Jaquitta Williams was joined by Affordable Care Act experts including U. S. Health and Human Services Regional Director Pamela Roshell and Linda Blount, Vice President of Programmatic Impact for the United Way of Greater Atlanta.
Our experts took your Obamacare/ACA calls and tweets and made this landmark health insurance legislation more easily understandable.
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.
JaQuitta was joined by leading Atlanta Surgeon Dr. Rogsbert Phillips-Reed, who operated on her and has helped many Atlantans through the ordeal of breast cancer over the years.
