  • new-puberty-bookGirls are developing faster and entering puberty earlier than a generation ago. Contrary to popular wisdom, early puberty is not merely a reflection of physical changes-it's deeply psychological with effects that can put a girl at risk for behavioral problems as well as long term health challenges, such as obesity, depression, eating disorders, and even breast cancer.

    Bay Area authors, Louise Greenspan, MD and Julianna Deardorff PhD, have published a new, groundbreaking book. Both mothers of young girls, the doctors address the question: What happens when a girl has the brain of an 8-year-old and the body of a 13-year-old? Hear their reassuring, empowering answers.

Marin County Announces New Breast Cancer Rates

The California Cancer Registry(CCR) has released new statewide comparative breast cancer rates that show a drop in Marin County’s breast cancer incidence and mortality rates over the most recent reported five year period, 2006-2010. Marin’s breast cancer incidence rates (i.e. number of cases) remain, however, approximately 10 percent higher than California’s as a whole and about 20 percent higher than the national average.
