Due to the level of importance this podcast bears, I am releasing it today in hopes that many of you will have the opportunity of listening to it over the weekend. Keeping with this important topic, I am following up the previous two “summer” shows with one we recorded this past March, featuring Alberto Caban-Martinez, DO, PhD and Natasha Schaefer-Solle, PhD, RN of the University of Miami, Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Care Centers, along with Exec. Asst. Chief Todd LeDuc and Frank Correggio of Broward County Sheriff’s Office – Fire Rescue Services. Doctors Caban-Martinez and Schaefer-Solle are both part of the team leading Sylvester’s study in the prevalence and natures of fire service occupational cancer.
As you will hear, they are both “in the thick of it” and answer our questions forthrightly and honestly. The entire team at Sylvester is not only studying the problem, but also working on solutions, both socially, by getting the word out even to the newest of recruits, but medically as well, as the team has been at the forefront of enhancing the methodology of the “early detection – better chances” push.
Additionally, Exec. Asst. Chief LeDuc discusses the success of the early detection programs, not just theoretically, but with actual facts from his firefighters at Broward Sheriff’s Office – Fire Rescue Services. And Frank Correggio, a former firefighter/paramedic, raises some excellent points regarding some of the occupational hazards that we have faced and some still do. This podcast is one that might just save your life or the life of someone you work with.
