Power of Research – Rapid City
Please join us as we host Komen Scholar, Dr. Kathy Miller.
Monday, April 24, 2017
Komen Scholar, Dr. Kathy Miller will discuss aspects of survivorship for those living with breast cancer through her work in metastatic research. Patients frequently report ‘fatigue’ as a consequence of breast cancer therapy, but the true impact of various cancer treatments on patient’s daily activities and physical fitness had not been measured. Using state of the art technology, Dr. Miller and her team measured the impact of various treatments including surgery and radiation, anti-estrogen drugs, and chemotherapy during the first year after diagnosis. She will discuss those findings and how patients and practitioners can improve their quality of life.
12-1pm: Rushmore Plaza Holiday Inn
Join us as we celebrate the progress of research on quality of life, and discuss the effects of metastatic breast cancer and living with treatment. Survivors, patients, co-survivors, physicians, medical staff and those interested in breast cancer. CME’s will be offered. Tickets $10. Lunch will be provided.
