Dr. Robert Millikan, Barbara Sorenson Hulka Distinguished Professor of Cancer Epidemiology, died Sunday, October 7. He was 55. A member of the epidemiology faculty at University of North Carolina Gillings School of Global Public Health and of UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center since 1993, Bob's research in cancer epidemiology sought to understand and provide better treatment for breast cancer, particularly for young African-American women. The Carolina Breast Cancer Study, which Bob directed for more than fifteen years, demonstrated that black women under the age of 45 are more likely to be diagnosed with aggressive types of breast cancer than are women of European ancestry. All of his research work included significant involvement of breast cancer advocates.

In 1994, Bob responded immediately to a call by the then recently formed National Breast Cancer Coalition to help create a curriculum for a radical new idea - Project LEADŽ - a program to teach breast cancer advocates the language and concepts of science, the basics of epidemiology and research design and the politics of breast cancer advocacy. Bob believed so completely in this experiment that he urged his mother, Flavia, a breast cancer survivor, to attend one of the first courses. He stayed with NBCC and Project LEADŽ throughout the ensuing 17 years, teaching, revising the curriculum, mentoring students, being a valued colleague to faculty and NBCC staff. His teaching skills were legion, making epidemiology compelling and relevant. Under Bob's gentle urging, students with no statistics backgrounds successfully calculated relative risk values. And he was fearless, being the one epidemiology teacher who could teach the Screening lecture without trepidation! He leaves a large cadre of devoted students and faculty whose education and lives he has enriched.

Thank you for supporting the National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund with your generous gift in memory of Dr. Robert Millikan, who helped establish Project LEADŽ and who was among its most gifted, dedicated and influential teachers. Your gift will allow us to continue teaching advocates the skills to identify what is worth fighting for in breast cancer and the tools to create meaningful change.

There are numerous aspects that you simply should remember in terms of taking care of your office. Having infrastructure and expertise in put in place multiple cities or countries cuts down on the impact of geopolitical and natural disasters. Performance management experts agree that scorecard systems will be the methods to an end.

Tugboats acquire the power either by steam engine or diesel engine. This would lead to the largest tank battle in history and also lends a dynamic backdrop to this book. Just as Orlick is about to murder Pip, his friends rush in and save him.

The downside of the car tax rates is the trouble it'll cause to average or lower income people. Cheap Used Cars Online can be easily found as you just have to do a bit of homework by searching it online. He is also involved in some of the biggest sponsorship deals in F1.

If you're after the sun, sea and sand consequently you'll love Antalya. At a foreign lodge, discretion is much extra complicated mainly because a passport should always be produced and oftentimes even left at the desk. Worry not, Canadian Knights offers a premier male escort service that guarantees 100% satisfaction.

The downside of the car tax rates is the trouble it'll cause to average or lower income people. Nitro remote control cars are solely for outdoor use. These companies figure out also if they will be using the donated auto for charitable features or grant the car to a human currently being or household members in need to have.

All you have to do is to find the right Welling escort who could give in to your every need. In some cases the escort might lie that somebody is holding up for outside, around then don't attempt to discover why is she lying. Worry not, Canadian Knights offers a premier male escort service that guarantees 100% satisfaction.
