Breast Cancer Education Program Asks:
How Do Asian American Women View Mammography Screening?
By Nina Goodman
Asian American women may pay little attention to educational
messages that are not culturally appropriate, according to the
findings of numerous focus groups and interviews conducted by the
National Cancer Institute's Office of Communications, as part of its
Breast Cancer Education Program. This is just one of the findings
from NCI's qualitative research with Asian American immigrant
women ages 40 to 74 who still mostly speak their native language.
A Leaf's-Weight Love Letter
By Rich McManus
Greater love hath no man for his place of employment than he will
take videocamera in hand and stroll the NIH campus on a brilliant
fall Sunday afternoon, film locations beloved to him, digitally
massage the movie 7 years later, then title the 14-minute docupoem,
"An October Sunday at NIH." This is what NIDDK scientist
emeritus Dr. Robert O. Scow of the Laboratory of Cellular and
Developmental Biology has accomplished in his spare time.
