    Understanding Breast Cancer Risk Assessment: Prevention is Power

    Thursday, Oct 20, 12p-1p CST

    About the Webinar: 

    According to the American Cancer Society, in 2022 there will be an estimated 1,600 new cases of breast cancer and 250 deaths from breast cancer in Nebraska. Data also shows that breast cancer has the highest incidence rate and second highest death rate in Nebraska for all cancers (2014-2018).  In 2020, only 65.8% of NE women over 40 years of age had received a mammogram in the last two years. Please join us to better understand the importance of how various risk factors can influence the risk of breast cancer.

     Learning Objectives 

    1. Identify the risk factors for breast cancer.
    2. Discuss risk categorization for breast cancer.
    3. Identify the importance of risk stratification for breast cancer.
