The CBS News website recently featured 10 tips to make better decisions about cancer care from U-M’s Angela Fagerlin, Ph.D., associate professor of internal medicine. Below is an excerpt from the article:

Cancer is scary, and doctors sometimes sound as if they’re speaking a foreign language when talking about the disease and its treatment. But “people are making life and death decisions that may affect their survival and they need to know what they’re getting themselves into,” says Fagerlin “Cancer treatments and tests can be serious. Patients need to know what kind of side effects they might experience as a result of the treatment they undergo.”

“Revisiting the “Race” Issue in Genomics”

Summary: Throughout the post-genomic era, efforts to categorize human populations according to geographical ancestry have been contentious. How does genetic variation map on to social categories of difference? How can researchers seeking to understand health disparities—or to interrogate diseases associated with particular genetic variants—pay attention simultaneously to race as social identity, and biological characteristic?
