Breast cancer screening info session

A doctoral student has teamed up with Tropicana Community Services (TCS) to conduct research for her thesis related to breast cancer screening.

Kimberly Nembhard, will host an information and survey session on breast cancer screening this Saturday, from 1 – 3 p.m. at the main office of Tropicana Community Services, 1385 Huntingwood Dr., Scarborough.

This information and survey session, approved by Walden University’s Institutional Review Board, targets women aged 50 to 69 years who currently live in the GTA.

Nembhard will present a balanced overview of breast cancer screening, its known benefits, lesser-known associated risks and explore any relationship that may exist between knowledge of over diagnosis and women’s decisions to participate in breast screening programs.

The survey is private and confidential. TCS has not developed the survey nor will it be offering the presentation.
