Recommendations for breast cancer screening are not standardized across organizations, causing confusion for patients and providers. In this webinar, Dr. Jennifer Potter, the Women's Health Program Director at Fenway Health and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston will explain how varying screening guidelines can be interpreted, with a particular focus on screening for lesbian and bisexual women (a population group that may have more risk factors, yet lower screening rates). In addition, she will describe the feasibility and acceptability of routine breast cancer risk assessment in an urban, LGBT health center, and identify preventive strategies to reduce breast cancer risk among high-risk women.
