A recent study led by Dr. Sarah Hawley has found that most women who get a double mastectomy to prevent breast cancer don’t need to do it, and are often motivated by fear. Her study has been receiving national press and has been featured in NBC News, CBS News, the Chicago Tribune, MSN, and many, many other venues.

Check out the recent panel on sexual harassment in medicine (video link below)! Panelists included CBSSM's Reshma Jagsi and Tim R.B. Johnson, as well as Paula Johnson, president of Wellesley College and moderator, Anna Kirkland, Director of IRWG.

recent report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine identified the causes and impacts of sexual harassment — and offered recommendations for institutional policies, strategies, and practices to address and prevent it.

Academic sciences, engineering and medicine share characteristics that create conditions for harassment. Such environments can silence and limit the career opportunities for both the targets of the sexual harassment and bystanders, causing both men and women to leave their fields.

An panel discussion took a closer look at this subject and reflected on progress being made at U-M in relation to the report.

Sarah Alvarez, a fellow at Stanford and formerly of Michigan Radio, will  present her work on creating a news product that can meet the information needs of low-income news consumers. Specifically her focus is on how to use data to discover which issues or systems information gaps exist for low-income news consumers and once the gaps are identified how the information should be presented to help people understand the information and use it to make decisions.

If you plan to attend this meeting please e-mail Nicole Exe at nexe@umich.edu by Monday November 2. If you decide to attend after that date you are still welcome and do not need to e-mail.
