Among the many questions that may arise for those diagnosed with breast cancer, the topic of breast reconstruction may be one of the early discussions you'll want to have with your doctor.

Join SIU Medicine professionals for an informal discussion of breast cancer reconstruction options you may want to consider, as well as hear from two breast cancer patients — one who had reconstruction surgery, and one who opted not to go that route.

There is no cost to register - visit Attendees can attend in-person at the Memorial Learning Center, or virtually. Doors open at 4:30 pm; the event begins at 5 pm.

Nicole Z Sommer, MD FACS
Director of Cosmetic Center, Institute of Plastic Surgery

Morgan Richardson, RN, BSN
Surgical Oncology Nurse
