We begin this episode of Pittsburgh 360 with the third installment in our series Men & Cancer and focus on a young man who found himself facing the diagnosis of testicular cancer. Then we take you into the Pittsburgh Public Market in the Strip District for a look at their fully licensed commercial kitchen and how it could impact our economy. Finally, we conclude the episode by going inside the Carnegie Museum of Natural History for a peak at the exhibit RACE: Are we so different?
