News Anchor Works to Increase Breast Cancer Awareness

In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Joan Karnell Cancer Center offered the educational seminar, “Breast Cancer: Early Detection is the Key.”

The program featured Renee Chenault-Fattah, news anchor at Channel 10, who also appeared as host and narrator in the video presentation, “African American Women CAN Beat Breast Cancer.” Held on October 10, the program opened with a presentation by Patricia Ford, MD, stressing empowerment, getting connected, assessing risk for breast cancer and learning early detection methods.

Lisa B. Aiello, RN, MSN of Pennsylvania Oncology Hematology Associates presented information about genetic risk for breast cancer and Patricia K. Bradley, PhD, RN, delivered a motivating talk entitled “Empowering Ourselves, Getting Connected.” Dahlia Sataloff, MD, a breast surgeon at Pennsylvania Hospital, focused on current treatments for breast cancer.

During the health fair, participants learned about the proper techniques for breast self-exam, genetic risks for breast cancer, clinical trials and current recommended medical screening schedules. The Joan Karnell Cancer Center provided a luncheon in the historic Great Court at Pennsylvania Hospital. The Center is planning another Breast Cancer Awareness Program this fall.

Renee Chenault-Fattah presented the video “African American Women CAN Beat Breast Cancer," a video in which she appeared as the host and narrator.

Patricia K. Bradley, PhD, RN was the keynote speaker who delivered a motivating talk, “Empowering Ourselves, Getting Connected.”
