Breast Cancer: The Power of Prevention & Screening
Wednesday, October 18,12p-1p CST
About the Webinar:
According to the American Cancer Society, in 2023 there will be an estimated 1,670 new cases of breast cancer and 270 deaths from breast cancer in Nebraska. Data also shows that breast cancer has the highest incidence rate (2015-2019) and the second highest death rate in Nebraska for all cancers (2016-2020). In 2020, 68.5% of women aged 40+ in Nebraska had a mammogram within the past 2 years. Please join us to better understand the importance of breast cancer screening, hear about risk factors and the role of genetic testing for breast cancer and learn about the impact of breast cancer on survivorship.
1) Identify national and local breast cancer incidence, mortality and screening data.
2) Review the evidence and rationale supporting clinical recommendations for breast cancer screening methods.
3) Discuss risk factors and the role of genetic testing for breast cancer.

About the Speaker
Lisa Poole, MD, is a Surgical Breast Oncologist at the Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center in Omaha. She became interested in breast surgery while stationed at Offutt Air Force Base practicing general surgery. “I realized how much I enjoyed performing breast surgery and developing relationships with those patients,” she said. “I enjoyed the opportunity that you get for continuity of care with breast care patients that you don’t always get with general surgery patients.” Dr. Poole is especially interested in the treatment of benign and malignant breast disease – treating a variety of breast conditions while also focusing on breast cancer and prevention. Dr. Poole believes that trust and communication are the most important parts of a physician-patient relationship. “A lot of times patients don’t hear much after they hear the word ‘cancer,’ so I’m always available if they have further questions,” she said. “Having surgery, especially for cancer, is a big deal, and I think it’s extremely important that patients feel comfortable with me as their surgeon and trust that they’re in good hands.” When treating breast cancer, she tries to make the process as easy and comfortable as she can. Originally from Iowa, Dr. Poole is married with three daughters. In her free time, she enjoys traveling, reading, exercising and spending time with her family.
