About the Series
NYOH is partnering with breast health experts across the country to bring you monthly programming focused on breast health, cancer and survivorship. There is no cost to participate in the virtual "fireside" chats, but pre-registration is required. Participants are encouraged to submit questions in advance of each discussion and will have the ability to ask questions via a chat box during the discussion.
