Tokyo Chapter of FEW:
Breast Cancer - Fight Against a Life-Threatening Disease
Date: Thursday, September 8th, 2005 Time: 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Speaker: Kiyoshi Namba, M.D., Chairman / Director, Breastopia Healthcare Group, Breast Disease Specialist
According to the World Health Organization, over 1 million women per year are diagnosed with breast cancer worldwide and is the leading cause of female cancer-related deaths around the world. Although ongoing efforts are strong in improving international breast health care, reducing breast cancer mortality rates, many women in the region – developed and under-developed countries alike, are lacking access to breast health care and medical resources. In support to the Breast Cancer Awareness campaign in October, we have invited Dr. Namba to present his views in our September meeting. Dr. Namba - who has dedicated his life in researching and improving breast health care in Japan – strongly believes that, in our current medical environment, early detection is the best preventive measure against the cancer. He will share with the audience the importance of understanding breast cancer and the three distinct breast health care guidelines: early detection, diagnosis and treatment. And with his continuing efforts in collaborating with other top medical experts on the subject, he will also shed lights on the advancements of breast cancer treatment and ongoing research, as well as an overview of the effects of breast cancer worldwide.
