Stevens, a breast cancer survivor whose mother also had breast cancer (though she died of ovarian cancer), interviewed 300 breast cancer survivors and their families to learn the personal truth about this disease--not just the medical decisions and treatments, but how the survivor and their family and loved ones coped.

While the report focuses on childhood obesity, when it comes to reducing costs and improving outcomes, it’s clear that we need to focus on adult rates as well.  Historically, obesity is linked to one third of the increase in domestic health spending since the mid-1980s and is a key factor in the rise in private insurance premiums, Medicare and Medicaid spending. Additionally, research I completed last year for America’s Health Rankings found that:   By 2018, 103 million American adults — or 43 ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
My Word: Newark residents must fight the 'blighted' designation
I LIVE in "Old Town" Newark. It's a peaceful, historic, centrally-located Bay Area enclave, and a wonderful place to live. Recently, however, Newark city officials have wrongly labeled this serene neighborhood a "blighted redevelopment zone," including 581 acres and more than 700 homes. The first step for determining a "redevelopment area" is to label the area in question "blighted." A blighted area is one that has a serious physical or economic deterioration (i.e.: dilapidated buildings, increased crime, disease) which cannot reasonably be reversed without governmental action. This ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
