Breast Cancer Risk Factors - How to Limit Your Exposure
Nearly half of cancer deaths can be attributed to preventable risk factors, according to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington. Mitigating risk factors and keeping current on cancer screenings are particularly important, especially in detecting and treating breast cancer. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.

Join us for a free webinar with Dr. Stacy Krisher, who will take an in-depth look at the genetic and environmental risk factors that may contribute to developing breast cancer. She will highlight factors such as weight gain, physical activity, diet, alcohol and nicotine consumption, and the role they can play in developing breast cancer. She also will discuss the steps women can take to reduce the risk of contracting breast cancer through lifestyle changes, as well as how to address instances where screening may need to be more aggressive for risk factors that can’t be modified.

This presentation is followed by a question and answer period. If you are unable to attend, please continue on to register and we will send you a recording of the presentation.
