Happy Thanksgiving from All of Us at CercaTalent+

“The heart filled with thankfulness is closest to the riches of the universe.”

As the holiday of Thanksgiving approaches, we are reminded of just how incredibly thankful we are for our colleagues, families, friends, a network that is hard-working, and for the amazing clients whose teams we support and encourage as they go through constant improvement.

We are thankful for the way you routinely display great passion for your work and how you let us be a part of that; for the way you remain intensely focused on growing; and for the countless ways you have trusted us to help in your professional, corporate and even personal success.

As many of us get ready to journey down the highway or airways to gather together with those we care for…or are waiting for them to come to us, we send you a heartfelt message of Thanksgiving and sincerest wishes for safe travels.

“He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has”

Breast Cancer Screening Policies Questioned Again

Researchers conducting a large national registry study recommended changes to current breast cancer screening guidelines that would make family history a more important consideration in setting ages to begin regular mammography.

Elham Kharazmi, MD, PhD, of the National Center for Tumor Diseases in Heidelberg, Germany, and colleagues looked at data from large Swedish data sets on 5,099,172 women born there from 1932 onward with at least one known first-degree relative. Of these women in the latest dataset from 2017, 2.3% were diagnosed with primary invasive breast cancer, the majority of whom (86.4%) had no family history of the disease.

As described in the team’s nationwide cohort study online in JAMA Oncology, the risk-adapted starting age of screening was defined as the age by which women with a family history of breast cancer attained a 10-year cumulative risk that was similar to the average risk for women at the recommended age of screening initiation in the general population
