As part of her commitment to educating the public about breast cancer, Georgia Cancer Specialists (GCS) physician Dr. Cheryl Jones of the GCS-Macon office recently participated in several local and national print, radio, and online interviews, as well as recorded a local radio spot.
Dr. Jones participated in a CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) pilot program aimed at educating women, especially minorities, about the importance of early detection and prevention that included a radio spot and a live, hour-long appearance on a call-in show on local Macon radio stations.
The radio commercial aired on AM 1240 Gospel WDDO and Blazin’ 92.3 FM WLZN. The call-in talk show, on which she was the only guest with host Gail Daniels, aired on WDDO. They took calls from listeners and discussed such topics as early detection, prevention, new treatments, life after breast cancer, and much more.
Around Town-North Macon magazine featured Dr. Jones in a special piece on breast cancer in its October issue. In the article, she discussed a new breast screening technology called molecular breast imaging.
Dr. Jones then went national with her breast cancer message, appearing on Natural Partners’ online television show “Well Rounded.” The theme of the roundtable discussion was “I Just Found Out I Have Breast Cancer: Now What?” Natural Partners is based in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Dr. Jones participated via live video conference feed.
