  • Denver, CO (1888PressRelease) October 01, 2014 - The HealthONE Family of Hospitals is collaborating with Susan G. Komen Colorado in an effort to further inform the public about breast cancer by organizing seven free educational seminars throughout the Denver Metro area.

    Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer for women and one of the leading causes of cancer death among Colorado women, so it is vital not only to provide potential life saving information, but also to clear up misunderstandings about often conflicting studies on breast cancer risk, family history and screening.

    "It important to inform and empower women when it comes to breast cancer awareness and preventative action primarily because every woman is at potential risk. HealthONE is a phenomenal partner and can really be a powerful asset in assisting our mission across the Denver area," said Michele Ostrander, Susan G. Komen Colorado CEO.

HealthONE's breast cancer services are focused on breast cancer prevention, early diagnosis, and caring, effective treatment.

    The free seminars are held on the following dates and locations:
