Komen series devoted to promoting breast health

The Orange County affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure will kick off a new education series devoted to breast health on Saturday.

Program topics, hospital system partners and presenters for the 2011 Breast Health Education Series will be announced at a morning event taking place from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the Westminster Rose Center, 14140 All American Way, according to a news release.

"The launch of the Breast Health Education Series provides a unique opportunity for survivors, supporters and the medical community to learn about progress in the fight against breast cancer directly from those at the forefront of the effort," Lisa Wolter, executive director of the Komen Orange County Affiliate, said in a prepared statement. "We aim to not only educate, but also motivate the public as we work toward finding a cure."

The event, "Be Aware & Take Charge of your Breast Health," will also include a half-day seminar on the latest news in early breast cancer detection, prevention and treatment.
