BREAST CANCER AWARENESS PRESS CONFERENCE
LAFAYETTE – During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Woman’s Foundation, Inc. Continuing Medical Education (CME) Department did what it does best. On Thursday, October 15th at 11:30 a.m. in the Woman’s Foundation Classroom, the CME Department hosted a Breast Cancer Awareness Press Conference. Guest speakers were Dr. Philip J. Meyer (DO) and Liz Richard (Breast Cancer Survivor).
The purpose was to increase awareness and promote a unique
opportunity for area medical professionals entitled Breast Conference. These informative,
collaborative gatherings are a joint partnership with the Elaine M. Junca
Women’s Imaging Centre to confidentially discuss breast cancer cases. Through
in-depth discussions of issues relating to breast cancer cases including
imaging and pathology findings as well as surgical, radiation and oncology
treatments Breast Conference allows physicians to network and exchange best
practices in order to improve patient care and survival rates.
“Breast Conferences are about assisting multi-disciplinary, medical professionals to provide better patient care,” says Executive Director Amy Broussard. “At Woman’s Foundation, we strive to be a center of educational excellence by providing quality learning opportunities, particularly in the realm of health and wellness.”
Breast Conferences are held every other Thursday from Noon to 1:00 p.m. in the Woman’s Foundation classroom. Physicians seeking a better understanding of complex breast cancer cases are encouraged to attend. CME credits can be obtained and lunch is provided.
The Woman’s Foundation Classroom is located at 4630 Ambassador Caffrey Parkway, Building A, Lafayette, La. 70508, on the campus of Women’s & Children’s Hospital.
