The Digital Divide: Statistics, Sports and Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is the premier biomedical in the world and yet survival has not increased since 2000. The Digital Divide explores what science has discovered about why breast and other cancers are difficult to treat, and why a shift to greater emphasis on early detection and prevention is warranted.  Host Robert Fortner interviewed Bob Eisenman and we'll listen to excerpts from that interview.

Also, statistics in sports might be distorting not only your view of the game, but of science and even lead to misjudgments in everyday life. Statistician Scott Berry brings this unexpected interplay to light.

You can listen to the full Bob Eisenman interview here.
