"BRA Day" at the University of Arizona

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

"BRA Day" (Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day) is coming to the University of Arizona. Many breast cancers survivors are not aware of their choices when it comes to a breast reconstruction following a mastectomy.  

Beth High, a Breast Nurse Navigator, is coordinating this event and speaks about the importance of education when it comes to breast reconstruction for cancer survivors. .

The “BRA Day” event is part of the fourth annual Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day, a nationwide collaboration between the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the Plastic Surgery Foundation, breast centers, nurse navigators, corporate partners and breast cancer support groups.

The event is from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 21 at the University of Arizona Cancer Center / North Campus, 3838 N. Campbell Ave.

For more information about the event, please contact Beth High at 694-9526 or Elizabeth.High@bannerhealth.com, or visit uacc.arizona.edu or www.BreastReconUSA.org.
