New technology fights breast cancer misdiagnosis

Early detection of cancer is one of the most significant factors that can improve long-term chances of survival for patients in New Jersey. For this reason, scientific research is continually dedicated to new ways to detect cancer while it remains in its most treatable stage. Breast cancer research has been particularly focused on early detection as it is among the most common conditions in America. In fact, breast cancer accounts for 25 percent of all cancer cases.

Medical errors and physician burnout

The participants were asked about safety in the workplace, medical errors, depression, suicidal thoughts, fatigue and indications of workplace burnout.

As the public policy division of a leading provider of property casualty insurance, the Travelers Institute has good reason to raise awareness of the dangers of distracted driving. Drivers in New Jersey will be interested to hear about the Every Second Matters™ event, which was just launched. The institute hosted this event on Capitol Hill on June 15 and also issued a report intended to get the conversation started about distracted driving.

Its findings may be of interest to residents of New Jersey.

Reviewing the most common July Fourth accidents

Residents of New Jersey may be too busy having fun to think about safety during the upcoming Fourth of July holiday. Still, it's wise to know what the most common risks are. For instance, Esurance and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety claim that Independence Day is the deadliest day for drivers. In fact, about 40 percent of all highway deaths between 2007 and 2011 were caused by intoxicated drivers over the July Fourth weekend.
