Empowering Women on Cancer Prevention at NMWA

On October 2, NMWA will host “Empowering Women on Prevention,” a panel discussion on the steps women can take to reduce the risks of cancer, in partnership with the Prevent Cancer Foundation.

Focusing on empowering women to take control of their health, a panel of experts and survivors will discuss issues surrounding women’s health and cancer prevention. It will be moderated by Andrea Roane, co-anchor from 9 NEWS NOW on W*USA 9.

Featured panelists:

  • Carolyn D. Runowicz, M.D., a physician, educator, and breast cancer survivor, has testifying on women’s health issues before the U.S. Senate and directs the Neag Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Connecticut Health Center. She was the first breast cancer survivor to serve as president of the American Cancer Society and first female president of the Society of Gynecologic Oncology.
  • Ann Kulze, M.D., a physician and health expert, works to introduce people to the joys of living well. She is a renowned authority in the areas of nutrition, healthy lifestyles and disease prevention. In addition to her private wellness coaching practice, she is a corporate wellness trainer and a highly sought-after motivational speaker.
  • Trish May, an entrepreneur, the founder of Athena Water and Athena Partners Foundation, as well as a breast cancer survivor, has been a visionary and an advocate for women’s health. In addition to her ongoing advocacy work, her personal experience with breast cancer inspired her to develop Athena water—symbolic of the essence of life, and named for the Greek goddess of strength, courage and wisdom—and donate proceeds to the cause.

The panel discussion will be from 6:30–8 p.m. with a reception beginning at 5:30 p.m. The NMWA exhibition, Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Powerwill be open for viewing for one hour following the program.
