Do you have questions about new therapies and treatment options, understanding your family history, nutrition, and rehabilitation after cancer?

This FREE interactive discussion about breakthroughs in breast cancer is a unique opportunity to have your questions answered by the experts at Northwestern's Lurie Cancer Center. Visit exhibits to discover breast cancer resources in your community and learn about local and national organizations providing support.

We have secured an overflow room next door to the main auditorium for guests to watch the program, which will be live streamed. Please note that guests seated in the overflow room will still get to pose questions to the panelists.
