Huguley Memorial Medical Center’s Spirit of Women® program will host a breast cancer awareness presentation on Tuesday, October 20 from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. in the Huguley Fitness Center Amphitheater located at 11801 South Freeway. All are welcome to attend this free event.
Oncologist Vinaya Potluri, M.D., will present “Everything You Need to Know about Breast Cancer,” a discussion on the latest medical information on the risks and treatment of breast cancer. Following the presentation, Dr. Potluri and radiologist Evan Evans, M.D., will be available for questions. “Pink” refreshments will be served. All Spirit of Women members who attend will enter to win an Ulta gift basket valued at $500.
According to research by the American Cancer Society, one of eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Many risk factors linked to breast cancer include controllable factors, like maintaining a healthy lifestyle and getting regular mammograms. However, some factors such as family history and growing older can not be controlled. Understanding risk factors and early detection of breast cancer can save lives.
Seating is limited, and reservations are recommended. To RSVP or to learn more about Huguley’s free Spirit of Women program, call 817-568-5480.
