About the Event
Spinning Science Series for MBC.
Knowledge is power and will help you become a better advocate for yourself (or others). In this series of workshops we will work to understand some basics of MBC as well as molecular biomarkers (like DNA and proteins) in order to better understand our pathology reports, biomarkers, and some available treatments, including clinical trials. Finally, we will give you tools that will enable you to find the high quality health information you need.
Each interactive workshop will last an hour and 15 minutes with about 15 minutes of pre work (to introduce you to the topic and pick up some basic information) and 15 minutes of post work, applying what we have learned. We will meet Wednesdays starting October 11th at 7 pm ET/6pm CT/5pm MT/4pm PT on Zoom for 5 sessions, with an added BONUS 6th session to be announced at a later date. We hope you can make every session, but know things happen! We will record any lecture from sessions and provide you with pdf versions of all notes and worksheets. If you attend the first session we will also send you a Project Life Spinning Science binder to organize your notes, pdf's, and worksheets.
Those who attend ALL sessions will be awarded a certificate of completion.
(recorded sessions, notes, worksheets are only for participants who are registered and attend 70% of classes)
Registration is open until September 25th and closes after we reach 20 registrations. A waitlist will then be started.
Disclaimer! We are not medical doctors or oncologists; this is for informational purposes only. Always talk to your doctor!
