8th Annual Breast Symposium on Oct. 14

St. John's Integrated Breast Center Invites the Community to a Day of Breast Health Education and Celebration of Self at the Serra Center

The Integrated Breast Center at St. John’s Regional Medical Center, a Dignity Health hospital, will host their highly anticipated community breast health day titled “Empower Yourself: 8th Annual Breast Symposium” on Saturday, October 14th. This event held during Breast Cancer Awareness Month features health education, sharing, and pampering. Join us to learn about the latest scientific advances in breast care, personalized medicine, and mindful lifestyle approaches. We believe medical care should be tailored to your body, genes, and individual needs.

“Breast cancer is more than a diagnosis, and managing breast health involves more than just medical care,” says Dr. Lynn Jeffers, Medical Director of St. John’s Integrated Breast Center and Plastic Surgeon. “Our 8th Annual Breast Symposium aims to empower people with knowledge and shared experiences. Due to overwhelming community interest in this event, we are excited to move to the Serra Center where we can accommodate more attendees and expanded offerings.”
