This first post is about Dense Breast Tissue and Microcalcifications

When Scheduling A Mammogram, Ask Your Provider if the Facility Offers 3-D or Digital Mammography. This is considered a more definitive diagnostic tool.
• Having Dense Breasts can make mammograms more difficult to interpret. This doesn't mean women with Dense Breast Tissue should avoid having mammogram; they also detect other breast abnormalities.
• Breast tissue is composed of fatty (non-dense) tissue and connective (dense) tissue. Women with dense breasts have more connective tissue than fatty tissue. About half of women undergoing mammograms have dense breasts.
• Dense Breast Tissue Appears as a Solid White Area on a mammogram. Fat Appears as a Dark Area. Mammogram X-rays do not penetrate — or "see through" — dense tissues as well as they do through fat. So, in women with dense breasts, mammograms may be more difficult to interpret.
• Studies have shown that Digital Mammography and a breast-imaging test called 3-D Mammography (breast Tomosynthesis) may provide an improved way of seeing through dense breast tissue.
A 3-D mammogram combines multiple low-dose mammogram images to create a 3-D image of the breast. Though not available everywhere, 3-D mammography is becoming more common.

Yale's (former) Director of Cancer Genetic Screening, Counseling & Testing, joins OneWorld Progressive Institute's, N'Zinga Shäni, to define exactly what Cancer Genetic Screening, Counseling and Testing means and discuss the important implications. The age of diagnosis is very important, and whether it is Colorectal, Breast, Ovarian, etc. How does genetic cancer affect men? What organ is most affected? What is the role of P53 in genetic cancer? Why don't we hear more about P53 and genetic testing?

Thanks to work done by the National ACLU and many others, including people in CT, Myriad Genetics No Longer Owns the Patent on BRCA1 & BRCA2. The company should NEVER have been given Patents on these genes.  Watch the short video linked below; please share it.

Where Do Workers Living on Low Incomes Stand in the Post-Pandemic Economy?

An article in Politico looks at the gains and losses—actual and potential—for lower-wage workers in the current economic climate. Katrin Kark, LISC’s director of workforce innovations, who is quoted in the piece, cautions that increased wages don’t suffice to stabilize finances or create economic mobility across the board. “Higher entry wages alone aren’t enough to close…opportunity gaps,” she says.

CDFIs + Impact Investors: New Capital Markets Analysis Highlights Opportunities and Impact

LISC and Enterprise Community Partners have released a joint white paper that catalogs how CDFIs have engaged with the capital markets in recent years. In an accompanying blog, the authors explain why this data is so critical, as economic pressure affects the availability and cost of capital for high-impact community development efforts. "The goal is to help impact investors identify how and where they might put their capital to work and what expectations they should have for performance,” they write.
