Update On Breast Cancer

imageOctober is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The American Cancer Society estimates that more than 230,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, and there are currently 2.5 million breast cancer survivors living in the US.

The recurring questions we all have about breast cancer remain focused on new insight about breast cancer’s causes, the current state of viable treatment options, and the progress made in discovering a cure.

Tomorrow, 92nd Street Y will host Dr. Larry Norton, deputy physician-in-chief of Memorial Hospital and the medical director of the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, for the 19th year to discuss what we know to date regarding breast cancer.

Listen to a podcast of Dr. Norton’s appearance last week at the Joan Hamburg radio show on WOR where he discussed developments in breast cancer research and answered questions from listeners.

More information and tickets to Update on Breast Cancer with Dr. Larry Norton, are available here.

92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With Jonathan Toubin


Two years in the making, New York Night Train will unveil its latest and most ambitious party, the Land of 1000 Dances—both a new kind of party and a new kind of dance class, at 92YTribeca tomorrow evening.

The brain child of DJ Jonathan Toubin, he’s been researching the dance crazes of the 1960s and trying to figure out a way to bring them to a contemporary club culture. And we’ve been researching his media and culture consumption, by way of the 92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A. Read the interview below.

Where do you go for news when you start your day?
I run out to Gimme Coffee and listen to neighborhood gossip. Then I go home where I have NPR and The New York Times on my email home page.

What are your favorite websites?
I don’t really look at websites very frequently unless its for work or other pragmatic purposes so my list is quite boring: Facebook, Ebay,, Priceline, Google, Wikipedia, etc…

How much do you use Twitter and Facebook (or other social networking services)?
I try and make sure to tweet for every gig I have and make a Facebook page for each of my events so people know what’s happening. I also try and check my Facebook every day to respond to comments people make, detag pictures, accept friends, and generally participate. After doing what I need to do, I’m not on Facebook and Twitter very frequently except at airports – where it makes me feel close to people far away…

92Y Video: Jeffrey Sachs on Obama, #OccupyWallStreet and Money in Politics

Jeffrey Sachs, director of Earth Institute, professor of health policy and management at Columbia University and special advisor to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, was here on October 16 for The Glantz Lecture: The Values That Unite Us.

In the wake of the worst recession in almost a century, Sachs turned his focus to his home country, arguing that America has reached a crucial moment in its history. He spoke at length about the failures of Obama, money in politics, and of course, Occupy Wall Street. “We’re just at the beginning of this,” he told the audience. “It’s not simple, but something is starting here.” Watch video excerpts above.
