February 15: Your Health Connection Talks Families And Cancer

ccrtd_logo.jpg

Join Host Pattie Walden for Your Health Connection on Jazz 91.9 WCLK, Wednesday, February 15 at 6:00 p.m. as we talk about cancer and families.  Family members can be your support system and your advocate, but families are never under more stress than when a loved one is fighting the disease. We’ll talk about it with Shavonn Richardson from Blue Flowers, Annie McRae, and Latoya Brown - three women who fight this battle each day. We’ll take your calls and questions live on the air at (404) 880 - 9255.

Your Health Connection on WCLK is Community Engagement from The Center For Cancer Research and Therapeutic Development at Clark Atlanta University.
