In 2011 BreaCan was fortunate to run two information sessions on the topic of Breast Cancer and Bones. Dr Esther Briganti, an Endocrinologist in private practice and associated with St Vincent's Private Hospital, provided a non-oncological perspective of the impact of breast cancer therapies on bone health in both premenopausal and postmenopausal women with breast cancer. In her presentation Dr Briganti reviewed the outcomes of clinical studies which have shown ways to prevent or reduce bone loss, as well as discussed other factors that may affect the risk of osteoporosis.
Due to the heightened interest in this area amongst women living with breast cancer, Dr Briganti agreed to have her second session recorded. This recording is now available on the BreaCan website as a podcast or can be borrowed in CD format from the BreaCan library.
