The Medical Minute: The power of pink


Breast Cancer Awareness month, beautiful fall leaves and football season -- what could they possibly have in common? When you stop and think about it, there are a few similarities. First, vibrant colors come to mind: red, orange and yellow leaves tell many of us that October is here. Pink ribbons appear in stores and on television shows, and some even show up at football games. NFL players wore pink cleats and gloves during their first games in October.  Whether you're a football fan or not, it's a good time of year to remind the

women in your life to get a mammogram.
