CBS News Los Angeles affiliate KCBS-TV interviewed Bodour Salhia of the Keck School of Medicine of USC about a blood test that could predict which patients are at risk of having their breast cancer return. Researchers will take a patient’s DNA and then test it for five years. “We want to determine which women remain at high risk for metastasis once they’ve completed their therapy,” Salhia said.

KCET featured research by the USC Price Center for Social Innovation and colleagues on how the high cost of living and housing have affected employers and employees. Two of the fastest growing industries in Los Angeles are professional, scientific and technical services (PSTS) and accommodation and food services (AFS), according to a 2018 report. Workers in PSTS and AFS are facing different housing challenges as more jobs become available.
