Breast Cancer Screening Science Is Changing

  • This event has passed.

July 14, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

According to the CDC, about 264,000 cases of breast cancer are diagnosed in women each year in the United States. When detected early, breast cancer can have a five-year survival rate of 99%, but when detected at a late stage and after it has spread to other parts of the body, five-year survival is under 30%.  
And yet, despite the great outlook if detected early, breast cancer is being diagnosed late and killing thousands of people who could have survived.

During the Find It Early Webinar, nationally esteemed health experts will be discussing:  

  • Who is at higher risk of breast cancer and why  
  • Why late diagnosis of breast cancer keeps happening despite advances in the science  
  • New screening recommendations based on age, breast density, and other risk factors
  • How patients and providers can stay on top of self-exams, screening schedules, and other precautionary measures  
  • An exciting bill working its way through congress that, if passed into law, will increase access to breast cancer screening care at NO out-of-pocket cost to high-risk patients
