October is the month where everything turns pink to support breast cancer awareness.
A breast cancer registry started in 2006 at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center is producing results for researchers. The registry connects researchers with people who have had breast cancer or have a family history of it. Cancer Institutes track their patients but Dr. Susan Pinney with the UC and Cincinnati Cancer institutes says similar registries are rare.
Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center is the recipient of a $20 million gift, its single largest contribution ever. The money comes from the Convalescent Hospital for Children, established in 1833 It no longer has a physical building, but for years has been raising funds and providing support for specialized programs housed at Cincinnati Children's.
Gateway Community College and Northern Kentucky University are partnering to make it easier for Gateway students to pursue four-year degrees at NKU.
Students can choose from 25 career paths and take up to four NKU classes at Gateway prices. All of their credits will transfer as well.
NKU President Geoffrey Mearns says the partnership will offer better service to all students, more efficient and effective use of resources and enhance opportunities for students to pursue their goals.
