Are You Average? Know your risks for breast cancer

Quiet Demo


12:15 – 12:45

This is an interactive presentation with Lynn Reid NP and Karen Gronberg NP from the Breast Care Center and Katherine Lafferty, Genetic Counselor from Cancer Risk and Prevention. The title of the presentation is, “Are You Average?”. We will discuss the risk of breast cancer framing it so that attendees will be able to determine their own risk and advocate for themselves with their PCP for mammogram or referrals. Questions that we will answer with the presentation will be: When do I have my first mammogram?, I have dense breasts, how at risk am I?, How much importance does family history have?
