Community Medical Center to Hold Evening Dedicated to Women and Their Health

Breast Cancer Awareness Symposium on October 17

Toms River, N.J., September 13, 2016 – One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, and every three minutes, another woman is diagnosed. Not only does it affect the person diagnosed, but family, friends and co-workers can feel its effects as well.

That’s why there’s no such thing as being too careful when it comes to your health. Whether you have had a breast cancer scare, been diagnosed, or are concerned about maintaining good breast health, you are invited to join The Breast Center at Community Medical Center, a RWJBarnabas Health facility, for an evening dedicated to women and staying healthy. The Breast Cancer Awareness Symposium will be held Monday, October 17 from 6 – 8 pm at the Captain’s Inn in Forked River.

Experts from Community Medical Center will provide information every woman can benefit from regarding breast health. Jorge Pardes, MD, Board Certified Radiologist with over 30 years of experience in breast imaging will explain the importance of where you get your mammogram and who interprets its results. Sumy Chang, MD, Board Certified and fellowship-trained breast surgeon, will explore what options are available if the diagnosis is breast cancer. In addition, Kathe Sadler-Wright, MSN, RN-C, Clinical Breast Navigator will share how a navigator can assist women who are diagnosed with breast cancer or who are undergoing treatment for breast cancer.

The Breast Center at Community Medical Center is the only program in Ocean and Atlantic counties accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers, a program administered by the American College of Surgeons. This designation validates the high quality care that is provided to patients who choose Community Medical Center for their care.

Dinner will be provided. The program is free, but seating is limited and pre-registration is required. Call 1.888.724.7123.
