Breast Cancer Resource Center to Present Free Talk on Cardiovascular Disease Risk

The Breast Cancer Resource Center of Santa Barbara will present a free health education lecture titled, “Heart Health and Breast Cancer: Identifying and Managing Cardiovascular Disease Risk in Women Treated for Breast Cancer,” from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. March 7 at First Presbyterian Church, 21 E. Constance Ave.

There is a growing number of women surviving breast cancer, and it's time to turn to learning how to manage other health risks such as cardiovascular disease. Heart health management in breast cancer survivors is an essential part of overall health and long-term survivor outcomes.

Michael Shenoda, M.D., FACC, FSCAI, specialist in cardiovascular disease, interventional cardiology and structural heart disease at Sansum Clinic, and breast specialist Julie Taguchi, M.D., a prominent oncologist at the Sansum Ridley-Tree Cancer Center, will speak on preventing, identifying and managing CVD risk in women treated for breast cancer; and how the two are related.

The lecture is open to the public and is free of charge. A Spanish speaking interpreter will be able.

— Silvana Kelly is the executive director of the Breast Cancer Resource Center.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
