Description

**PATIENT-FOCUSED EVENT**

The Irish Cancer Society Collaborative Cancer Research Centre BREAST-PREDICT and Europa Donna Ireland would like to invite patients, scientists, clinicians, patient advocates and other stakeholders to attend the lay event ‘Taking Charge of Breast Cancer: Lifestyle Tips for Survivors’.

Our invited guest speaker, Dr. Pamela Goodwin, is an esteemed medical oncologist with extensive experience in the area of breast cancer, and Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Senior Investigator at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, Ontario. Over the course of her career, Dr. Goodwin radically changed the way that cancer patient support groups are viewed and has created the "Taking Charge"™ support group program at the Marvelle Koffler Breast Cancer Centre, to educate patients about healthier diet and physical activity choices that may decrease risk of recurrence.

Please join us for a general presentation on lifestyle implications in breast cancer outcomes followed by an engaging discussion!
