When the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) announced new recommendations for mammography screening in 2009, the ensuing media frenzy generated a lot of heated conversation. In the midst of that debate, BCAction was one of the few breast cancer organizations to acknowledge mammography’s limitations and call for safer, more effective screening methods.
With related studies and legislation currently in the news, we think that it’s a good time to offer a webinar with our comprehensive analysis of screening mammography.
This webinar will delineate the risks and benefits of breast cancer screening, review the science behind the USPSTF’s recommendations, and provide attendees with tools for understanding media coverage of mammography. Join us for an illuminating look at a complex and often confusing issue.
