Northern Inyo Healthcare District’s breast surgeon, Jay K. Harness, MD, will discuss new breast cancer treatments and why these new options are increasing optimism for patients and their families during NIHD’s next Healthy Lifestyles Talk.
The talk is set for Wednesday, Oct. 4, 6:30 p.m. at NIHD’s Birch Street Annex, 2957 Birch St., Bishop.
Dr. Harness is one of the physicians who helped establish NIHD’s Breast Health Center a little more than a year ago. In addition to his surgical expertise, Dr. Harness is the author of textbooks and patient guides on the subject of breast cancer and its treatments.
This Healthy Lifestyle Talk is part of NIHD’s recognition of national Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A second related talk on lymphedema by Monica Jones and Laura Molnar, NIHD’s Certified Lymphedema Therapists, is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 12. Watch local media for more details.
