tie one on mabryDr. Helen Mabry, breast surgeon and UT assistant professor of surgery, will discuss breast cancer screening and breast conservation surgery Thursday, May 21, at 6 p.m. in the Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center.

“Breast cancer is a very common disease in the United States, and a lot of us have known someone who has been affected by the disease or are personally involved with it,” Mabry said. “The decision-making process for treatment is personal and complex. This lecture is a review of some of the data that goes into that decision-making process.”

Each person who attends the event will be entered into a drawing for tickets to an upcoming sporting event or a gift certificate for spa services sponsored by Tie One On.
