Webinar: An In-Depth Look at Breast Cancer Screening

When the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) announced new recommendations for mammography screening in 2009, the ensuing media frenzy generated a lot of heated conversation. In the midst of that debate, BCAction was one of the few breast cancer organizations to acknowledge mammography’s limitations and call for safer, more effective screening methods.

With related studies and legislation currently in the news, we think that it’s a good time to offer a webinar with our comprehensive analysis of screening mammography.

This webinar will delineate the risks and benefits of breast cancer screening, review the science behind the USPSTF’s recommendations, and provide attendees with tools for understanding media coverage of mammography. Join us for an illuminating look at a complex and often confusing issue.

    Thanks to BCA for providing this webinar. Due to my work schedule, I will not be able to participate in the webinar on either date, and I wonder if the material will be available at a later date on the website…

  3. VERY EXCITING! As a young survivor (diagnosed under 40), the mammography “picture” is especially complex. Will do my best to attend, but I’m grateful that you’re getting the word out!
