A study led by UNC Lineberger researcher Adam Goldstein, MD, MPH, and Sarah Kowitt, MPH, found broad support, even among smokers, for increasing the size of health warnings on cigarette packs.
The 2017 American Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C., April 1-5, is expected to draw more than 20,000 scientists, clinicians, advocates, and others, including UNC Lineberger faculty, to discuss advances in the field of cancer science.
UNC Lineberger's Hazel Nichols, PhD, Chelsea Anderson, MPH, and their colleagues report that women diagnosed and treated for cancer during their childbearing years more commonly gave birth prematurely, and to babies whose weights were below normal. Cancer survivors also had a slightly higher rate of cesarean section deliveries.
Through the N.C. Cancer Survivorship Provider Action Network (NC-CSPAN), cancer survivors and their loved ones can participate in a free, four-week educational program on nutrition, exercise, coping with stress and medical care. The program seeks to engage survivors to smooth the transition from active treatment.
