Guest: Charlotte Gard, PhD, Assistant Professor of Applied Statistics at New Mexico State University; Jeffrey Tice, MD, Associate Professor at the UC San Francisco School of Medicine  One in eight U.S. women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in her lifetime.  The challenge in predicting who will be at risk and who won’t, is that family history isn’t all that helpful: About 85% of breast cancer occurs in women with no family history of it.
