For all female students and employees

All female Brigham Young University students and employees are invited to attend a free “Fact vs. Myth” seminar about breast and cervical cancer Wednesday, March 28, from 1 to 3 p.m. in 3326 Wilkinson Student Center.

The seminar is sponsored by the Utah Breast and Cervical Cancer Task Force and BYU Women’s Services and Resources.

Gina Clay, an oncology nurse, will debunk common misconceptions about these dangerous cancers and talk about recognition and treatment. Clay has worked with Salt Lake Valley breast cancer patients for nearly 20 years and runs multidisciplinary cancer clinics at LDS Hospital.
