A Series of Posts on Breast Cancer from the Avon Breast Cancer Forum

Posted by Catherine Morgan on February 26, 2010

I was honored to be asked to attend the Avon Foundation’s Breast Cancer Forum earlier this week in San Francisco.  And I have so much to share with everyone about all that I learned there.  I decided to do that in a series of posts rather than just one big one.

Here is some of what I’ll be sharing over the next several days…

–  Video interviews with Dr. Laura Esserman on new mammogram recommendations.

–  Video reactions of attendees to Dr. Esserman’s discussion on new mammogram recommendations.

–  Advances in Imaging Technologies to help improve early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer.

–  Is fear of unnecessary biopsies having an impact on early breast cancer detection?

–  Results of survey on the early impact of the new breast cancer screening guidelines.

–  The latest research on Inflammatory Breast Cancer…Signs and symptoms for early diagnosis, new treatment recommendations, understanding why this type of breast cancer can be so deadly.

–  Reaching the medically under-served, uninsured, and under-insured.

–  Nutrition and physical activity in breast cancer.

–  Most effective ways to explain risk factors in breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.

As I post on these topics, I will also include links to them on this post.
