The discussion will touch upon various aspects of exercising while being treated with cancer and try to answer questions like, Why and how does exercise work to help fight cancer?, What should you know about resuming exercise after surgery? Should you continue exercise during chemotherapy? and even provide practical advice on how and where to exercise, and how to find cancer specialized trainers.
SHOWTIME: FRIDAY, JULY 18 AT 11:30 PDT/2:30 EST
It's the middle of the summer -there is still time to shape up. From Liposuction to non-invasive devices. There is a lot to choose from and much mis-information and hype.
Dr. Jerome Potozkin joins me on Friday to discuss how to make an informed choice when deciding on Body Contouring procedures. Truth not the Hype. We'll be discussing Liposuction and non-invasive devices including the most recently FDA approved device called UltraShape.

Welcome to this week’s iNurse Radio episode where we discuss the link between Viruses and Breast Cancer featuring Dr. Kimberley Baltzell. In the United States, research has shown that 1 out of 8 women will experience invasive breast cancer at some point in their life. Although the diagnoses rate of breast cancer has been decreasing in recent years, more than 200,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer were expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with nearly 65,000 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.
Dr. Baltzell is currently an assistant adjunct professor at the University of California, San Fransisco and Associate Director with the Global Health Science Masters Program. Her current research consists of overseeing 40 student projects throughout the world. These studies are designed to understand effective diagnoses and treatments for children in sub-Saharan Africa with limited resources. While focused on various student projects, Dr. Baltzell continues research on viruses associated with increased risk of breast cancer.

On The Curepanel Talk Show this week, we launched a new talk series on rare cancers/diseases, discussing Lynch syndrome and its Emotional implications with Megan Myers, a genetic counselor at UCSF, and Georgia Hurst and David Dubin who are Lynch syndrome survivors and advocates.
Lynch Syndrome is characterized by the inheritance of genetic defects in the MLH1, MSH2, MSH6 and PMS2 genes, and predisposes families to developing colorectal cancer and endometrial cancer in women.
The panel discussion educated the audience about the genes linked to Lynch Syndrome and their association to other diseases, including the diagnosis, treatment and management of Lynch syndrome. In addition the panelists emphasized the importance of seeing a genetic counselor before and after testing, who can help deal with the emotionally taxing diagnosis of the disease, explain about its implications and screening measures, provide information about support groups, and also encourage other family members to get tested.
The Cure Panel Talk Show Team thanks the panelists and the audience for a very informative discussion.

ElTyna McCree, affectionately known as "queen of the airlines", because of her innate ability to walk on water and create some of the most astounding airline testimonials. McCree now celebrating 45 years as a travel icon, began her illustrious career with United airlines in Pittsburgh, Penn, in the late 60's. There were few blacks working in the industry then, and she continued her career at Allegheny Airlines (now U.S. Air). Her position at Allegheny was Director of Convention Services. She was named official travel coordinator of the Church of God in Christ in 1968. She started her first travel agency in 1978 in her beloved Oakland, Calif., and quickly became known as the travel agent to the stars. She booked travel for the late Alex Haley, Earl Fatha Hines, Dr. Benjamin Hooks, and Bishop Walter Hawkins, to name a few. She served as official travel agent for "Black Filmmakers Hall of Fame" and became personal travel agent for the late Robert Hooks, Vonetta McGee, Whitman Mayo and many other stars. In the late 90's, McCree had the golden opportunity to book travel for the radiology department of UCSF San Francisco to all of their training conferences in the US and abroad. When the corporate account was removed, Dr. Roy Filly, Drs. Charles & Gretchen Gooding, and numerous other doctors continued to use her services. She is possibly the oldest African American travel professional in the nation, and was featured in Upscale Magazines' August 2000 issue. She was named a power broker for the new millennium in the field of entrepreneurs. She shared the honor with such luminaries as Earvin 'Magic' Johnson, Isaiah Thomas, Bernard Bronner, and the late Attorney Johnnie Cochran.

Dr. Lustig, M.D. is a Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology at the University of California, San Francisco, and also the Director of the Weight Assessment for Teen and Child Health (WATCH) Program at UCSF.
The Health Technology Forum is on an incredible growth trajectory. A few years ago, they were a Silicon Valley health tech meet-up. Now they have a national footprint with 4500 members and 13 chapters in 5 different countries: San Francisco, Dallas/FortWorth, San Diego, New York City, Atlanta, Washington DC, Austin, Los Angeles, Toronto, Vancouver, London, Bangalore, and Manila. They have held close to 100 events world-wide, and some of them, like the upcoming Innovation Conference, have become “must attend” events in the health tech space.
In this chat on TDWI Radio, we asked the Founder, Pronoy Saha, about his passion in health and technology and his upcoming "Innovation Conference". To give a sneak peak: Saha's passion is to improve access to health care globally using technology. To do so, he organized a hackathon this last weekend focused on behavioral health - a topic that is often ignored in the rush to produce fitness apps and wearables. He and his team have also organized their upcoming annual Health Technology Forum (HTF) "Innovation Conference", themed "Pathways to Sustainable Health." There are more than 75 speakers including keynoter, Dean Ornish MD of the Preventive Medicine Research Institute at UCSF; Stefano Bertozzi, MD, PhD, Dean of the UC Berkeley School of Public Health; Geoffrey Clapp, CEO of Better, and Eric Bing, Director, Global Health at George W. Bush Institute. And as an added bonus all of the competitors in the hackathon (mentioned above) are invited to attend and the top 4 winners will be demo'ing at the meeting.
Join us as Pronoy describes the journey. It should be fun.
