Floridians interested in learning about environmental factors linked to breast cancer are invited to register for a free hour-long webinar next week.
The online seminar, sponsored by Breast Cancer Action (BCAction), a national grassroots education and advocacy group working to end the breast cancer epidemic will feature Ted Schettler, MD, MPH.
Dr. Schettler is a leading voice in understanding how people interact with their environment and the impact it has on health. He will be discussing the insights and analysis of his new book The Ecology of Breast Cancer: The Promise of Prevention and the Hope for Healing.
He has published extensively on the breast cancer epidemic, examining it through an eco-social framework, recognizing the ways that family, community, and societal experiences shape the health of individuals and populations.
“Breast cancer is profoundly a public health concern, requiring a public health response,” he has written. “Thinking about this as an ecological challenge helps us identify multi-level interventions that will reduce breast cancer risk and improve outcomes after diagnosis."
For convenience, the webinar will be offered at two different times. Click on one of the two links below to register.
