Oct. 20 Olson Center Brown bag on breast cancer 
Every month, new information regarding the early diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer becomes available in the medical literature. Yet, little of this information reaches the health care provider or the public in a meaningful way. More distressing is that there is too much variability in the care of the breast cancer patient and that this variability can lead to undesired results. Attend the next Olson Center brown bag on Tuesday, Oct. 20 at noon in the UNMC Eppley Science Hall Amphitheater as Edibaldo Silva, M.D., Ph.D., of the Olson Center for Women's Health explains how to become a well-informed breast cancer advocate. Seating is limited; please pre-register by calling the Olson Center at 599-6345. Bring your lunch and refreshments will be provided. The lectures are free. However if you would like to obtain nursing credit, the cost is now $10. Payment instructions will be given when you pre-register. Access to free continuing education programs in the UNMC College of Nursing is available online.
