May 4: Ovarian Cancer Education:  Although Ovarian Cancer is most often found in women over the age of 40, Germ Cell Tumors occur in 5 percent of all Ovarian Cancers and are usually found in young women before the age of 30.  This is important for women to know.  In this OneWorld program gynecologic oncologist, Thomas Rutherford, MD, Ph.D., Yale School of Medicine, provides crucial information and graphic images to explain what happens in these cases.  Please share this information with others.

May 2, 2013 The WISEWOMAN Program is administered through CDC's Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention (DHDSP). The WISEWOMAN program provides low-income, under-insured or uninsured women with chronic disease risk factor screening, lifestyle intervention, and referral services in an effort to prevent cardiovascular disease. The priority age group is women aged 40–64 years.

 WISEWOMAN programs also offer testing for diabetes. Women are not just tested and referred, but can also take advantage of lifestyle programs that target poor nutrition and physical inactivity, such as healthy cooking classes, walking clubs, or lifestyle counseling. Women who smoke are encouraged to quit and are referred to proactive quit lines or quit-smoking classes. The interventions vary from program to program, but all are designed to promote lasting, healthy lifestyle changes.

LISC CEO Talks Transportation Access on Global Citizen's “Vax Because”

As part of their worldwide vaccine access campaign, Vax Because, Global Citizen invited LISC CEO Lisa Glover and Uber's global head of social impact Julia Paige to discuss their $11 million Vaccine Access Fund, designed to upend barriers to transportation to vaccination sites—barriers that primarily affect undeserved communities of color. Said Glover in the video interview, together with Uber, “we can deliver the resources to our partners that are trusted on the ground, and they can work with their communities to get the transportation needs met.”
