Posted Date: 2/8/2012 11:30 AM

Dr. J. Randolph HechtThe Athena Breast Health Network has launched a series of face-to-face forums where patients, breast cancer experts and community members can exchange direct experience and research in breast health care.

In this podcast of their inaugural forum, special guests Arash Naeim, associate professor of medicine and hematology/oncology at UCLA and Athena site principal investigator, and Laura Esserman, professor of surgery and radiology and director of the Breast Care Center at UCSF, examine breast cancer risk assessment and prevention. The results will be fed back into the UC-based Athena Network of 150,000 women to improve survival and reduce suffering from breast cancer.

Host: Michael Krasny, via KQED Radio.
