Breast Cancer Prevention And Screening Round Table
120 Bragaw St Anchorage, AK 99508
"Know Your Risk...Change Your Future"
Breast cancer is the most common cancer, affecting 1 in 8 American women. Most women who are diagnosed with breast cancer have no known risk factors or history of the disease in their families.
Although breast cancer screening cannot prevent breast cancer, it can help find the disease early when it is easier to treat. We will discuss which breast cancer screening tests are right for you, and when to have them done.
Join us for a round table discussion on breast cancer prevention and screening, which will include the following topics and speakers:
• Achieve and Maintain a Healthy Weight - Ruth Townsend, MS
• Regular “Intentional” Exercise - Meghan Grotte, MS
• Nutrition: Low Calorie Density - Jennie Grunert, RD, LD, CDE
• Screening: Moving Past the Confusion – Should I or Shouldn’t I? - Kelly Powers, MD
