I decide therefore I know: Free educational seminars about breast cancer
In Hellenic Association of Women with Breast Cancer “Alma Zois” we are aware of the questions that concern women with breast cancer experience and for the past seven years we provide scientific information through “I decide because I know” seminars.
Every woman with breast cancer must be aware of all issues concerning her health. Valid and reliable information contributes to participation in decision – making, “compliance” to medical guidance, misconception’s correction that could cause stress as well as increased internal control.
Therefore, “Alma Zois” organize a cycle of 10 seminars that are aimed at women with breast cancer experience. The participants have the opportunity to receive valid and reliable information, as well as to talk to experts on issues that concern them.
The aim of “I decide therefore I know” seminars
The aim of the seminars is responsible information and guidance by doctors and scientists, in order to ensure a better quality of life during or after the breast cancer experience.
Prominent scientist and professionals specialized in breast cancer will analyze different aspects of the disease.
