New York, NY— Jan. 7, 2011— What are the three ‘must-do’s for breast cancer prevention? Can an old, irritating friend actually be bad for your health – and if so, what do you do about it? How crucial to your health and happiness is eight hours of un-interrupted sleep?
Doctors Susan Love and Alice Domar, co-authors of Live a Little! Breaking the Rules Won’t Break Your Health, have a message for you: Don’t sweat the small stuff. On Monday, January 31 at 8:15 pm at 92nd Street Y, Drs. Love and Domar help women manage top-of-mind, everyday health concerns, and give them some tips on how to do it without getting even more stressed out. First on the list? Balancing career, family and exercise when you only have 16 hours a day (if you’re getting those eight hours of sleep, that is). Also on the agenda: the inescapable companion to modern life – stress – and whether it can actually serve you well (or not). And, with a peek in the pantry, they talk about importance of berries (and other anti-oxidants) on your shopping list, even in an era belt-tightening.
Dr. Love, author of the famous Dr. Susan Love’s Breast Book (De Capo Press, now in its fifth edition), also looks at breast cancer and what’s changed since the book first came out in 1990, including: breast cancer awareness campaigns (and whether they have been successful); the possibility of a preventative vaccine on the horizon; and how to know the difference between an “interesting” media report on breast cancer and an important one.
Elizabeth Browning, CEO of BeWell.com, a social network focused on health issues and information (founded by Dr. Love and Dr. Nancy Snyderman), moderates the discussion.
Following the talk, Drs. Love and Domar will sign books (which will be on sale at the event).
