    Mon, 20 Oct 2014

    Everything ashamed to be pink nowadays is to remind those who have breast cancer awareness especially now during though the month of October. Breast Cancer Awareness Month let's talk about those doctor caramel and director of breast imaging at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Doctor good morning thank you for joining us. Good morning thank you for having me here. Are you pleased about this everything. Paint that just seems to be sweeping the nation even an excuse me. Even pumpkins sold in supermarkets are panicked at a local car dealer as the front of his business you have to be pleased although I think it wonder. You know it reminds us that we have come a long way but we have a long way to go. It reminds women scheduled their mammograms it reminds me on everyone to support that organization. Wait on the are dedicated to. and to try to find a cure it is indeed I think it's a wonderful Doctor but until there's so many misconceptions. Out there about when someone should begin screening for mammograms and how often they should be getting them to. Yeah in and benefited can't convert the different organization. Have made a recommendation went on but when you really look at that they got. The marquis is the only Catholic has been proven him randomized control trial would have considered to be the gold standard can lower your risk. Of dying from breast cancer. And that when you look at the study that I have done over and over every time the country at birth can come about. On that in the dark. Doing colonoscopy is an 848. And most of the recommending organizations including the American Cancer Society. Recommend annual tomography beginning at age forty. Doctor finding a cure you mentioned this a minute ago. Really are we even close or is early detection still the best. Early detection it. Still what have our on main tools in risk of to care. And you look on at the data out stand up on nine do you stop on mortality rate from breast cancer has decreased by 30%. And part of that is due to the market but part of it is also due to improvement in treatment. On chemotherapy hormone hormonal therapy and we have made it. Delighted toward a run in improving that on the art are cure rate. We haven't quite gotten your right to but there have been great achievement over the past I'm decades. Now we also know that there are learning that Roswell is opening up my Griffey screening. To all women now not just those who have committed with the cancer diagnosis or have suspicion of cancers are ranked. That in Iraq you know this is what we do act star and cancer detection diagnosis and treatment. And that that is it part of our mission Q on Q in you've got cancer screening. And so we wanted to do it to a higher capabilities that we don't we're not quite ready. That and you don't mean I think you heard about our new chemical don't mean that comment back on what will open hopefully and then on. 2000. Fifteen and that allowed to truly expand our that you targeted but we wanted to get started sooner. So we've extended our hours so that we can actually offer screening tomography to women in the community not to let me back and to diagnose it. Doctor you had mentioned age forty as the age when women should really get moving November mammograms but. What about women with a family history of breast cancer should they do this earlier. Yes there are some women with a strong family history of breath and especially women who have a feeling that you're Brett cantor and the women are diagnosed at a young age. upon whom that may be back for them to start screening mammogram earlier but this should be done in consultation with your position. We out having hybrid screening we have a hybrid on the op program here. I'm not rules but on the we evaluate women that I'm helping them without their actual red and determining. Whether they are candidate screening at a younger age of forty. Doctor we learned a lot from noon we're very grateful to be joining us thanks. Thank you so much of my pleasure. Doctor Malayan.

New York State assemblywoman Jane Corwin is with us on the WB and -- she's a member of the assembly's education committee she was also at last night's public hearing at Akron high school. On the common course standards Jane thanks for the time. -- thank -- after listening last night what was your suspect. Well clearly isn't a lot. Act is wrong with common core. That the biggest issue of course we've heard a lot of people in the passenger car in the past and stuff it's not to the number of Catholic kid having to take now. It's also -- the -- on the task in the manner in which the -- happy to take the test so. But it clearly the biggest problem but -- others particular place but it while. The -- as student data you know it's part August and a lot of collecting a student data. And a lot of concern about the privacy you know making sure families information student information is getting into the wrong hands. And the cost of implementing the system any one school district as saying that. You know content million dollars to implement that curriculum but they only got 70000 dollars from the rate the top funding so. Clearly it's taxing. These. You know funding issues for the school. Pumping out in the big -- and it came up that was the most disturbing to me was the impact of -- on disabled students. No one of the teachers got open and testified said. That hurt disabled students -- to 28 assessments a year. And to me that it is just. You know what what -- accomplishment trying to do it acts so so that's something I think that immediately we have to take a harder look at and do something about because. We're not serving students by making that take -- -- -- here. Those -- are just so we understand -- our common core principles different for disabled students on the wearing the same. As part of the common core curriculum they're an alternate system that they have to follow and it's very very involved and requires so much. That's what. And and the kids are being who will be required what shall implement it. To take tests on computers where a lot of kids to don't have the physical ability to do that so. So clearly there has been. Oversight in the development of the curriculum because it's in my opinion it's going to be very detrimental to disabled can't. I'm you know certainly look at that there's a lot of challenges forward in the mainstream candidates in average -- But you know we we need to get credit to mark in the area. Any changes would be up to the state legislature is my understanding. But realistically. How soon can we make changes. Well this policy in you know remember comScore was handed down to a by the federal government and our finding. From the federal government ties to it so. If we words it's just throw out -- are we throw out hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding and that. Alone could cause huge problems for all interest across the state. So what we need to do -- take a look at. What the state legislature can do to sit and help. With the implementation of the common core for example under the huge technology requirement. For an school district's top. The state legislature need to step up and provide that funding to make sure that they have the computers to meet the requirement. Certainly you know other things that we can do would be which on the disabled kids. You know making sure that you know our own state rules and regulations are in place that can protect the disabled kids. And other clips that student did I think it's an area that we can look into. Shoring up to make sure we have privacy laws that would prevent student data from going to the wrong people. Try to get -- I think the legislature can do. What we can't do is change the curriculum that is something that being put together by the federal government we can't. How old man then you know. Third graders don't study Mesopotamia you know that's something that's handed down by the federal government but we as legislators can certainly reach out and stayed at you know. And it concerns along that we heard last night and they can take them to the federal government and hopefully that feedback to federal government might initiate which angered. Chris Carlin -- you go from here after collecting all of those doing the listening to all these so educators and teachers. Do you report -- to the legislature where do we go from here. Absolutely I'm -- -- -- -- by the minority conference this terrible so. We take that information -- their testimony that was written an intern and then there are more beyond just what was. Prevent it last night a lot of people have written into these separately. All that information will go to our minor minority conference in January. We sit down and have our. Our discussion amongst ourselves comparing notes stabilize. And then come up with our policy agenda and what that does it that's a deeper look forward to these temporary. -- the governor. And that's what we will work. When it comes to by the time I have for any kind of policy changes going forward. Change good to have you with us thank you. -- will be in -- that's Jane Corwin member of the new York state assembly she's also a member of the education committee.
