Oak Brook, ILL (PRWEB) September 13, 2012
As National Breast Cancer Awareness Month approaches in October, there’s no shortage of news related to breast health. Stories highlighting recent studies are critical in helping women understand the risks and treatments of the disease but much of the news can be confusing and conflicting. Recent stories about mammography, dense breast tissue, genetic testing and others often leave women with more questions than answers.
Heidi Memmel, MD, Advocate Medical Group will tackle these questions and more during the next edition of AdvocateLive, Advocate Health Care’s live web chat set for September 20 at 11:30 a.m.
Dr. Memmel will answer viewer questions about breast health, offer life-saving tips and much more during the 20 minute broadcast. Questions can be submitted in advance via Advocate’s website. http://tinyurl.com/8j6hcfc
