New Jersey 101.5 - According to The American Cancer Society, about 8,330 people in New Jersey will be diagnosed this year with breast cancer. For the first time ever, female breast cancer has surpassed lung cancer as the most commonly diagnosed cancer worldwide. But the good news is that the breast cancer death rate has dropped by 41% from 1989 to 2018, said Dr. Adriana Suarez-Ligon, breast cancer oncologist at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey. "The reason why we've seen this death rate from breast cancer drop is solely because of early detection through mammographic screening. Of course, there have been many advances in treatment but catching cancer early leads to better treatment options and overall, better survival for the patient," Suarez-Ligon said. Read More

ROI-NJ - Barry Ostrowsky, CEO, RWJBarnabas Health: In other years, the involvement of RWJBaranabas Health in the two biggest health care announcements in the state — the expansion of the Cancer Institute of New Jersey and the establishment of the Hub in New Brunswick — would be enough to easily put Ostrowsky in the top spot. Not that he minds either way. The well-respected health care executive always has his eyes on the bigger prize, which is bringing better care to the state. Which, by the way, will be a little easier at the system’s flagship facility in Livingston, thanks to the recent $100 million donation from Leon Cooperman. The researchers, Steve Libutti: COVID-19 has dramatically showed in real time the need for real-time research into our greatest health care issues. Thankfully, the state is at the forefront of such research — and doing it at multiple facilities, some of which are being built out. Drs. Aburi (director, Atlantic Center for Research, Atlantic Health System), Libutti (director of the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey), Perlin (chief scientific officer of the Center for Discovery and Innovation) and Strom (inaugural chancellor of Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences) are making discoveries that are having impact and influence today and tomorrow.
