On Thursday, November 30, 2023, Blanchard Valley Health System (BVHS) and the Mayo Clinic will present a “Live & Learn” educational presentation on the science behind the prevention and treatment of breast cancer. This event is designed to educate the public about the latest research and advancements in this field.
The presenters for this event include Dr. Bill Kose, vice president of special projects for BVHS; Dr. Derek Thomas, a physician with The Armes Family Cancer Care Center; and Dr. Sandhya Pruthi, a physician with Mayo Clinic. These experts will discuss their findings and insights into the best practices for preventing and treating breast cancer.
As part of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, BVHS has been recognized as one of the first Ohio-based healthcare providers to have this distinction. This partnership allows BVHS to work closely with Mayo Clinic specialists to provide patients with access to the most advanced medical knowledge and treatment options available in Northwest Ohio.
By collaborating with Mayo Clinic, BVHS doctors can stay up-to-date on the latest research, diagnostic tools, and treatment recommendations. This enables them to develop personalized treatment plans for their patients that are tailored to their specific needs. BVHS physicians also have access to Mayo Clinic experts who can review their cases or consult on complex medical issues.
The presentation will be held via Zoom from noon until 1 p.m., providing an opportunity for people from all over Northwest Ohio to attend virtually. Those interested in viewing the presentation should visit bvhs
