Studies have shown that patient education and communication positively affect patient health outcomes, including emotional and physical health. The Breast Cancer Coalition works with area medical professionals and other experts to offer a wide variety of Evening Educational Seminars throughout the year.
Evening Educational Seminars bring information and education to our survivors and community friends.
All Seminars are presented with Closed Captioning. Come with questions, leave empowered on your own health experience.
