A Night of Breast Health Awareness
On Tuesday, September 30, you are invited to join us for Susan G. Komen San Diego’s inaugural breast health awareness event, Screens, Genes & the Choices We Make. When it comes to breast cancer, there’s a lot of misinformation. Screens, Genes & the Choices We Make will help cut through the confusion and get out the facts. The event will be hosted by San Diego’s own Emmy-winning women’s health advocate, Carol LeBeauwho will share her own breast cancer story and help thread the facts together.
