The Year of the Nurse and Midwife

The Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing is collaborating with nurses in academic and clinical centers across Northeast Ohio to mark 2020 as “The International Year of the Nurse and Midwife.”

They’ll kick off the yearlong celebration on Tuesday, Jan. 21, at the Samson Pavilion of the Health Education Campus (HEC) at Case Western Reserve University. In the months that follow, there will be events at more than two dozen participating universities, hospitals and other health care organizations in Northeast Ohio.
The Tuesday afternoon event at the HEC will include remarks from U.S. Rep. Dave Joyce, a Geauga County Republican who is co-chair of the House Nursing Caucus. Joyce will be introduced by Case Western Reserve University President Barbara R. Snyder.

Breast density notification laws not effective for all women

A new study suggests that state-mandated notifications on mammogram reports intended to inform women of the health risks related to breast density are not worded effectively.

The study, conducted by researchers at Yale and New York University, found that although dense breast notification (DBN) laws did help some women understand they had increased breast density, those women were not more likely to know that breast density is associated with a higher risk of breast cancer or that dense breasts limit the ability of mammograms to detect cancer. The finding was particularly pronounced for women with a high school education or less.

The study appears in the Journal of General Internal Medicine.

The American Cancer Society and Pfizer Launch Community Grants Focused on Racial Disparities in Breast Cancer Mortality

The American Cancer Society and Pfizer have approved grants totaling more than $2.5 million in nine communities focused on reducing racial disparities and helping optimize outcomes for women facing a breast cancer diagnosis. The grants, funded by Pfizer Global Medical Grants and overseen by the American Cancer Society, are the first in the Integrated Approach to Breast Health Equity Competitive Grant Program, a three-year collaboration working to promote equitable outcomes for all women living with breast cancer

While breast cancer death rates have decreased consistently since 1989, attributed both to improvements in early detection (through screening as well as increased awareness of symptoms) and treatment, not all women have benefitted equally from these advances. In fact, in the most recent period (2013-2017), black women had a breast cancer death rate that was 40% higher than white

One Thing That Should Be Top on Your To-Do List this Year

Stress is the health epidemic of the 21st Century, according to the World Health Organization, and one in four people will experience mental illness in their lives, costing an estimated $6 trillion by 2030. Employers and health plans have found a tool to address these issues.
