Professor Michael Hecht sends us the following news --


I thought you might like this link for a wonderful story about Carla Fisher, a recent PhD from our program. Dr. Fisher is doing incredible, interdisciplinary work to help women cope with and recover from breast cancer. As the article notes, "The new study is an extension of research Fisher conducted while working on her doctoral dissertation at Pennsylvania State University that looked at how women diagnosed in young, middle and later adulthood adapt to breast cancer through their mother-daughter communication." Her doctoral work was directed by Jon Nussbaum. . . .
