More to My Story: Navigating Breast Cancer, Fertility and Family Planning

Hollywood, Health & Society, in partnership with the WGAW Committee of Women Writers, presented an online panel discussion about an issue that weighs heavily on young women affected by breast cancer, yet is rarely discussed.

Survivors and previvors of breast cancer are faced with making difficult decisions about how their treatments can affect fertility, family planning and their future.

The panelists included:

HH&S Newsletter (Fall 2021)

Our Fall 2021 newsletter highlighted mental health, beginning with two of the honorees for the Sentinel Awards. There's also Goober the Clown on "clown abortions"; transforming caregiving for older adults; two sisters who take different paths when faced with breast cancer risk; and a future with slaughterbots.

HH&S Newsletter (Spring 2021)

The Spring 2021 edition of the newsletter featured two panel discussions presented by HH&S—how young Black women must fight against racism and bias when facing breast cancer, and the brave new TV landscape on depictions of poverty in America. Also spotlighted were vaccine myths and the impact of HH&S vaping research.
