  • Making Better Decisions to Prevent Breast Cancer. Elissa Ozanne, Harvard Medical School, Laura Esserman, University of California San Francisco Medical Center. A woman's risk profile is crucial to the decision-making process when considering options to prevent breast cancer. Biological markers hold promise to improve the prediction of risk and the response to interventions. The authors discuss the pilot version of software that helps physicians advise patients about their individual cancer risk and how to weigh the prevention and treatment choices.

Whether they're thwarted athletes or math geniuses who just plain love sports, operations researchers offer new approaches to determining the most deserving teams to make the playoffs, scheduling games, playing fantasy sports, and making a winning decision on the playing field.
