William Smith Alumna Publishes Book on Breast Cancer

Elizabeth Platt '88, recently published a book, “100 Questions & Answers About Breast Cancer,” which she co-wrote with well-known breast cancer advocate Zora Brown and an eminent oncologist, LaSalle Leffall, MD. It's a guide to breast cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment intended for newly diagnosed patients and their families. Platt notes that “a medical self-help book might seem like a stretch for an anthropology major, but it just goes to show the benefits of a liberal arts education!”
