Risk Reduction for Breast Cancer – Discussion around Lifestyle Interventions

About this Event

Join leading experts for this free online event focused on Risk Reduction for Breast Cancer. Currently, the “prevention” is used so much for “cancer” however we are taking the approach of managing your risk. Learn what this all means. Is it “prevention” or is it more about managing your risk? We will discuss what steps you can take in your day to day life based on science that can minimize this risk. Hopefully this knowledge may reduce some of your anxiety around “should I eat that steak or have that cooking?” or dare I say it “have a glass of wine”!

By attending, you will learn:

  • What does Risk Reduction really mean?
  • What clinicial changes should I do to minimize my risk? Screening?
  • What lifestyle changes help to minimize my risk of breast cancer? Nutrition, exercise, stress management, all of the above?
  • Are there certain times in my life that I should be more cognizant of risk reduction?
