NURSES NEEDED

Texas hospitals are in critical need of NICU registered nurses to help provide relief to those who have been working countless hours since Hurricane Harvey made landfall last Friday. Area hospital systems are currently transporting nurses into Dallas and Austin, and working to get nurses into the Houston/Corpus Christi areas as the water recedes.

South University, Novi Faculty Member Uses Cancer Battle as Inspiration for New Book
Book Focuses on the Unique Issues Black Women Face When Fighting Breast Cancer

NOVI, MI. – August 30, 2017 -- South University, Novi faculty member Cheryl Holloway, PhD has just released the new book The Black Woman’s Breast Cancer Survival Guide, Understanding and Healing in the face of a Nationwide Crisis.


Holloway, a two-time breast cancer survivor who was first diagnosed at the age of 39, wrote the book to educate and empower African-American women about the many aspects of a breast cancer diagnosis. From overcoming the fear of treatment side effects to learning to advocate for their own health and well-being, Holloway uses her experience as a patient and her expertise as a public health professional to help readers facing a breast cancer battle.

“A breast cancer diagnosis is terrifying,” Holloway says. “But after the initial shock subsides, women owe it to themselves and those who love them to take charge of their health. Oftentimes, black women face unique challenges in their breast cancer battle and they must feel confident enough to ask questions and get the information they need about their treatment.”


“Black women are more likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer before the age of 40,” she continues. “So check-ups and screening are vital. Yet, many black women miss these appointments because they don’t have healthcare centers near their homes or the transportation to get them there. However, they should know there are many resources available to help them. I want every woman to have that information.”


Holloway is the program director for the Bachelor of Science in Public Health program at South University, Novi and also teaches courses on women and minority health issues and public health and wellness. The Black Woman’s Breast Cancer Survival Guide, Understanding and Healing in the face of a Nationwide Crisis was published by Praeger-ABC-CLIO.
