Women's Reproductive Lifespan & The Unique Needs of Cancer Survivors
The reproductive lifespan of women in the United States has increased over the past six decades, according to a new study from Texas Tech University. Duke Appiah, Ph.D., MPH, Assistant Professor, Public Health, at the Obesity Research Institute at Texas Tech University, authored a recent study on the trend. He says that these changes can affect much more than a woman's reproductive health.

Then, according to the National Cancer Institute, there are nearly 17 million cancer survivors in the US, each with a different experience. On this week's Mayo Clinic Q&A segment, we'll learn about the unique needs and concerns of cancer survivors of all ages, from Dr. Kathryn Ruddy, associate director of Patient and Community Education and co-chair of the Symptom Control/Survivorship Cross-Disciplinary Group at Mayo Clinic Cancer Center,.

And, we all face everyday stress, and it seems to get worse by the day. We'll talk with Amy Serin, PhD, neuropsychologist, author of "The Stress Switch: The Truth About Stress and How to Short-Circuit It," for advice on how to recognize stress, and find relief.
