Encore: Celebrating National Men's Health Month

Wednesday, June 14, 2017

June is National Men’s Health Month, a time to raise awareness of health issues specific to men and encourage early detection and treatment of disease. In America, men’s health issues can often be overlooked or ignored. Men are statistically far less likely to go to a doctor than women, feel less comfortable reporting health problems and are more likely to face social stigma for reaching out for emotional support. On today's episode, guest host Linda House is joined by Brandon Leonard of the Men's Health Network to take a deeper look at health issues facing men today.

Encore: Calling It Quits

Tuesday, January 12, 2016

According to the Center for Disease Control, tobacco remains the single largest preventable cause of death and disease in the United States. Cigarette smoking alone kills more than 480,000 Americans each year. So it’s no shock anymore that there’s a link between smoking and cancer. However, for many people, cigarette smoking is still a part of their life, and a very hard habit to break. Many people also think that if they haven’t quit smoking by now, they won’t ever be able to—even if they one day are faced with a cancer diagnosis. Luckily, this is not the case. On this episode of Frankly Speaking About Cancer, guest host Linda House is joined by Tobacco Treatment Specialist VJ Sleight, the "Queen of Quitting."

Innovation Happens: The Electronic Nose

Tuesday, December 8, 2015

Over the years there have been numerous studies on dogs' ability to detect cancer and how that ability might be applied in a clinical setting. This work is particularly important for cancers for which there are currently no effective means of detection or for which the testing process is extremely invasive.

Today, in the latest installment of our series Innovation Happens, we’re going to take a look at electronic noses. Inspired by dogs’ natural smelling ability, scientists and engineers are working to develop machines that will allow doctors to quickly and effectively detect cancers.
