According to the National Institutes of Health, roughly 12 percent of women in America will develop breast cancer at some point in their lifetime. While breast cancer alone is enough to cause a scare, the cancer cells also have the potential to spread to new areas of the body—including the brain.

Meet Hannah Hazard-Jenkins, M.D. and Paul Lockman, Ph.D., doctors who are dedicating their efforts to research and treatment of breast cancer. Hear what they have learned about blocking the cancer’s growth, increasing patient survival rates and new treatments.

Join them at the next Ask WVU Medicine Community Conversation, Tuesday, May 23 at 6 p.m. in the WVU Health Sciences Center Fukushima Auditorium.
