Mayo Health Disparities Researcher: Invited Speaker at Breast Density and Cancer Risk Workshop

By Sumedha Penheiter

Dr. Carmen Radecki Breitkopf was an invited lecturer at the 8th International Breast Density and Cancer Risk Assessment Workshop, in San Francisco, CA, June 7-9, 2017. The title of her talk was "Communicating Risk and Density Information to Wom-en." The presentation addressed cancer risk communication, breast density notifica-tion as a form of risk communication, and described her ongoing NIMHD-funded clinical trial (NCT02910986) to evaluate different methods of communicating breast density information to Hispanic women, for whom breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death. The workshop attracted over 100 individuals from around the world who are leading experts in breast cancer imaging and risk assessment modeling. Dr. Celine Vachon, co-investigator of the ongoing trial, served on the Steering Committee for the international workshop. Congratulations to Dr. Radecki Breitkopf!
