Event details:  

Every 2 minutes, an American woman in the USA is diagnosed with breast cancer.  Most women aren’t aware of a significant risk factor that women with dense breast tissue have, a 4-6x higher risk of breast cancer. Asian and younger women are more prone to have dense breast tissue. The current gold standard of mammography is not optimal to detect cancer in dense breast tissues.
 
Our panel of distinguished thought leaders will discuss:
 
-    Recent advances in early breast cancer detection
-    Breast density as an independent cancer risk factor
-    Technological advancements for screening women with dense breast tissue
-    Legislative issues impacting both women with dense breast tissue and their physicians

Please join us for a networking breakfast reception followed by a panel discussion
