WebMD, teams with CDC, ACOG for breast cancer e-CME

WebMD has partnered with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to educate clinicians about appropriate care for women with early signs of breast cancer. In collaboration with WebMD's Medscape, the CDC has developed an online CME program consisting of five modules, which the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) will promote to its more than 50,000 members. According to Steve Zatz, MD, executive vice president of professional services at WebMD, the program was developed to educate physicians about the latest evidence, protocols, and guidelines around detecting breast cancer. "The program is consistent with Medscape's mission of providing medical professionals with the highest quality information so that they can provide the best care to their patients," Zatz tells ePharm5.

How would you like to make a difference in breast cancer research? The Sister Study needs your help to determine if breast cancer is caused by something women come in contact with at work, at home, in their communities or in the personal products they use.

The Sister Study is looking for 50,000 women to help discover the environmental and genetic causes of the disease. Women ages 35 to 74 are eligible to join if their sister (living or deceased), related to them by blood, had breast cancer; they have never had breast cancer themselves; and they live in the United States or Puerto Rico.

ENROLL TODAY or simply help spread the word to women in your community! Either way, you can help find the causes of breast cancer!!
