Daly City cancer seminar to kick ash this month

DALY CITY, California–The Pilipino Bayanihan Resource Center is holding a community education and outreach seminar on cancer prevention each Wednesday in May to discuss tobacco cessation, nutrition program and physical exercise.

PBRC will promote cancer awareness by including the use of on-site professional interpreters and translated material in order to deliver cancer risk reduction strategies. Taught in Tagalog and English, PBRC’s Program will replicate existing cancer awareness programs, with cultural modifications.

The tobacco cessation class using the Breathe California Ash Kickers curriculum will be held every Wednesday at 5:30pm on May 8, 15, 22, 24(Thursday), and 29 at PBRC – 2121 Junipero Serra Blvd. Daly City.

The Stanford Hospital and Clinics Community Partnership Program, a collaboration with the Stanford Cancer Institute, is sponsoring the seminar to help reduce cancer-related health disparities among minority groups and underserved populations in San Mateo County.

The funding award supports culturally appropriate cancer programs that improve or sustain positive cancer outcomes, utilizing community-based organizations to deliver the resources to target population.

Studies clearly indicate that tobacco remains a scourge and a major cause of heart disease and other cancers. Even with advances in early detection and treatment, discouraging people from smoking remains the best strategy.

Findings further indicate that non-English-speaking groups are at greater risk for starting or continuing smoking, and highlight the need for tailored interventions.

For more information, please call Liza-PBRC 650/992-9110.

    Mayoral rivals accuse Christine Quinn after bribery scandal
    New York’s latest bribery scandal reverberated in the city’s mayoral
    campaign Wednesday, with Democratic front-runner Christine Quinn accused
    by rivals of having been slow to crack down on City Council members’
    corrupt use of discretionary funds.Public Advocate Bill de Blasio
    called for the elimination of council “member items” at a news
    conference on the steps of City Hall


    Days after a political bribery scandal rocked the city, GOP mayoral
    candidate Joe Lhota offered solutions to curb corruption, and accused
    the Democratic front-runner, City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, of
    not doing enough to stop council members from abusing their power.
    Speaking outside City Hall Sunday, Lhota said his proposals
    would make it difficult for elected officials to abuse their power and
    place harsher punishments if they break the law. “It is time to end this
    tsunami of sleaze and hold our public officials to a higher standard,”
    he said in a statement.
