January 21, 2010

A firestorm of opinion circled the nation in late 2009 when a government agency and trade association released new recommendations on screening women for breast and cervical cancer.

A panel of experts next week will examine the new recommendations at an event hosted by the Texas Medical Center Women’s Health Network. The panel event is Jan. 26 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Museum of Health and Medical Science, 1515 Hermann Dr.

Panel members include Roberta Ness, M.D., dean of The University of Texas School of Public Health at Houston, Therese Bevers, M.D., medical director of the UT M.D. Anderson Cancer Center’s Cancer Prevention Center and Virginia Moyer, M.D., chief of the Texas Children’s Hospital’s academic medicine service and professor of pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine.
