Radio Smart Talk for Thursday, September 1:
Since witf's Facing Cancer Together initiative began last spring, we've heard many stories about how much a diagnosis of cancer transforms lives. There obviously are physical, mental and emotional changes, but a study out this summer points to another aspect of life that seperates cancer survivors from those who have never had cancer -- jobs.
Penn State University researchers found that cancer survivors are less likely to be employed and work fewer hours, even years after their diagnosis.
We'll ask two of the researchers why on Thursday's Radio Smart Talk.
Also, the latest Franklin and Marshall College statewide poll is out today and it shows that Pennsylvanians don't think President Obama should be re-elected, but the majority of those polled also would vote for the president over any of the current Republicans candidates. The poll also indicates Pennsylvanians support a tax on natural drillers by a two-to-one margin. We'll talk to F and M pollster Berwood Yost about the results.
