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.
Hannah Hazard-Jenkins, M.D. and Paul Lockman, Ph.D., doctors who are dedicating their efforts to research and treatment of breast cancer, will share what they have learned about blocking the cancer’s growth, increasing patient survival rates and new treatments.
The event is free and open to the public, and parking is readily available. Participants will learn what is happening in clinics here on the WVU Medicine campus as well as what is next on the horizon for treatment and research.
