Movie star Rob Lowe was the featured guest at the Lynn Sage Cancer Research
Foundation’s 25th Anniversary Fall Benefit “City of Pink Promise” luncheon
event last week. Since its inception, LSCRF has raised over $20 million for
breast cancer research including $15 million for Northwestern Memorial
Hospital. Lowe spoke candidly about his mother’s and maternal grandmother’s
battle with breast cancer, including his admitted anger at his mother for

“When we think of women’s health, we often think about childbirth,” says Dr.
Teresa Woodruff, an obstetrician-gynecologist who is the founder and
director of the Institute for Women’s Health Research at Northwestern
University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. “That’s not negative. Birthing is
a major part of women’s lives, and it is a major health risk, even in
2010.”

New Northwestern Medicine research shows people with this common arthritis
are more likely to walk fast enough if they lead physically active
lives.

“The more active people are, the faster they can walk,” said Dorothy Dunlop,
associate professor of medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School
of Medicine and lead author of the study. “This is strong evidence that even
a small increase in activity is related to better walking function. The bar
for improvement isn’t that high. This should motivate people to get moving,
even if they have pain or stiffness.”
