JoAnn on Brian Lehrer and more

Update 2: Click here to hear JoAnn's discussion with Brian Lehrer/WNYC earlier today.

If you're in NYC, don't miss JoAnn Pushkin of Are You Dense Advocacy talking to Brian Lehrer of WNYC (local NPR affiliate) about dense breast legislation tomorrow (Thursday)! It's on 820 AM/93.9 FM at 10:25 AM.

  • Major network interview coming up--stay tuned
  • This blog is a week and a half and has received 1,108 hits! Not bad for a blog on a single piece of state legislation!
  • A big thanks again to Assembly Member Andrew Hevesi for reinstating his support for the bill.
  • If you live in Scarsdale/Westchester/Pelham/Bronxville/Pelham, please call Amy Paulin at (518) 455-5585 and ask her to support this legislation that will double the rate of breast cancer detection for women with dense breasts. (She voted it down in health committee.) 
  • I don't think I'd actually linked to the bill yet. So here it is.
Update: Welcome new readers. Useful links are on the left, and you can sign up to receive email updates on a link at the bottom of the page. If you live in NY, please contact your assembly member (find your assembly member here) and tell them to support the bipartisan Breast Density Disclosure bill S6769A/A9586C. As I said before, although the bill is a no-brainer, a lot of brains backed by bucks are going into killing the bill.
