Community Breast Health Advocates Share Insight in New YRMC Foundation Video

| Posted by | Categories: Breast Health, Foundation

Breast health is a topic that affects just about everyone in our community. You might be a breast cancer survivor, or you may know someone who is dealing with it. Maybe you’re getting ready to schedule your annual mammogram. Perhaps you have donated your time or resources to a campaign for the cure. Or you may be aware of the abundance of publicity regarding lifestyle choices that may help prevent breast cancer.

The Foundation at Dignity Health – Yavapai Regional Medical Center (YRMC) brings a timely, local angle to the sometimes-overwhelming information that’s out there. They had conversations with Quad-City breast health advocates from various walks of life. The outcome is a video that brings you valuable data, information about local resources and technology, tips and suggestions, and most importantly, encouragement regarding breast health for you, and those you love.

You’ll hear from:

  • 3-year breast cancer survivor Marnie Uhl, President and CEO of the Prescott Valley Chamber of Commerce, who shares a personal look into her own journey and how it has affected her life.
  • Kathi Hoffer, Operations Manager at the Breast Care Center, Dignity Health – YRMC, offering compelling statistics regarding breast screening options and which approach is the best for catching cancer early and reducing mortality.
  • Michael G. Macon, M.D., retired Breast Surgeon, with valuable insight from his years of experience working with breast cancer patients and their families.
  • LaNette F. Smith, M.D., Breast Surgeon with Dignity Health, Yavapai Regional Medical Group, who explains why YRMC’s team approach from the very start of the patient’s journey is what drew her to become a part of their Breast Care team.
  • Robbie Nicol, Executive Director of Community Outreach and Philanthropy at Dignity Health – YRMC, describing how the generosity of YRMC donors has allowed YRMC to purchase state of the art equipment and draw top-notch specialists.

There’s even a fun, interactive quiz to help you brush up on your breast health knowledge.
