In March 2011, nearly 200 guests attended the Think Pink, Live Green:
Protect Your Breast Health conference, held in Lankenau’s auditorium.
The conference, developed by Dr. Marisa Weiss, Lankenau Director of
Breast Radiation Oncology, and breast cancer survivor herself, was part
of an ongoing movement to reduce breast cancer risk. The event focused
on how environmental factors can affect the chances of developing breast
cancer, and outlined 31 steps people can take to reduce their risk.
Speakers included Dr. Weiss; Harvard Medical School cell biologist, Dr.
Joan Ruderman; Jennifer Sabol, MD, Lankenau Director of Breast Care
Services; and Lankenau certified genetics counselor Rachael Brandt. Also
participating in the program were Lankenau physicians Paul Gilman, MD,
Director of Oncology; Robin Ciocca, MD, breast surgeon; Zonera Ali, MD,
medical oncologist; and Terri McHugh, MD, Medical Director of Lankenau’s
Cancer Risk Assessment and Genetics Program.
In addition to the speaking program, and health fair attended by
numerous vendors, a Zumba exercise demonstration and Whole Foods Market
healthy food demonstration were offered. Guests also received the newly
published Think Pink, Live Green: Protect Your Breast Health booklet
which guides readers through the risks and risk reduction steps. The
booklet and conference were made possible, in part, by a generous grant
made in honor of Jeanne R. and Herman E. Robinson, given by Elissa R.
Segal and her family.
