Does Early Detection Save Lives?

May 2014

In February, the results of one of the largest studies on screening mammography to date were published in the BMJ. This study, and the debate that followed, raised serious questions for women across the nation.

  • Does early detection actually save women’s lives?
  • How should women interpret the results of the Canadian National Breast Cancer Screening Study?
  • Should women stop getting mammograms altogether?

For our next free webinar, we are joined by the study’s author, Anthony B. Miller, MD.

For your convenience, we’re offering the webinar at two different times:

Register for Tuesday, May 6th 2pm-3pm PDT/5pm-6pm EDT

OR
Register for Wednesday May 7th 10am-11am PDT/1pm-2pm EDT

The Canadian study revealed that even though mammography is finding more and more breast cancer, screening mammography does not reduce death rates. Similar studies have identified that aggressively screening the general population for cancer is causing more harm than good.

Join us for a conversation with Dr. Anthony B. Miller, Professor Emeritus of the University of Toronto’s Dalla Lana School of Public Health and lead author of one of the largest studies on screening mammography to date, the Canadian National Breast Screening Study.

RSVP for the free webinar today:  Tuesday, May 6th 2pm-3pm PDT/5pm-6pm EDT or Wednesday May 7th 10am-11am PDT/1pm-2pm EDT. Join us for a balanced conversation about mammography that will also include the real harms to women.

Can’t make these times? No worries; register at either of the links above, and after the webinar is complete we’ll send you the recording so you can tune in whenever is convenient for you.
