Hello! I’m Dr. Dawn Hershman. I am a breast oncologist and I direct the breast cancer program at Columbia University Medical Center. My research focuses on improving quality of life for breast cancer survivors, and I am a Co-Investigator on the Mi Vida Saludable Study.
My goal is to help you to remain cancer-free for as long as possible, and eating more fruits and vegetables, like those found at the farmers’ market, is one way to decrease the chance of getting cancer again. In this newsletter, we will compare the prices of some fruits and vegetables at the farmers’ market to those at other food stores. As you can see, the farmers’ market is not necessarily more expensive!
