Speakers For Your Group
Do you need a speaker for your next meeting?
EWBC is excited to offer virtual community education. Has your group or club moved to virtual meetings? We would be happy to join you to present on Breast Health, Bone Health or Genetics & Cancer Risk. All sessions are free of charge and presented by our expert staff.
Knowledge is Power: Breast Care & Imaging Technology
The American Cancer Society states that breast cancer is the second leading cause of death in women. Learn how the latest advancements in breast imaging, the breast density information law, and personal risk assessments are helping doctors find early breast cancers and saving lives.
Did you know, the lower your bone mineral density is, the greater the risk of a fracture?
This educational session will discuss important factors that influence bone health, identify criteria for bone density testing and offer tips on preventing bone loss.
Genetics & Cancer Risk Assessment
Over the past several years, advances in the field of cancer genetics have given patients the opportunity to determine their predisposition to certain cancers, including breast cancer, to help initiate proper medical management. Although multiple risk factors for breast cancer are known, personal and family history of cancer are key elements impacting cancer risk.
The goal of our Cancer Risk Assessment and Genetic Counseling Program is the early detection and/or prevention of breast and other cancers.
This presentation will review EWBC’s genetic counseling program, eligibility criteria for testing and the impact genetic testing has on the way people are screened for cancers.
