Each year, over 40,000 women die from breast cancer. Despite billions of dollars being spent on research, breast health outcomes have not improved in 30 years. What has increased? Overdiagnosis and overtreatment.

On the front lines of the race for a cure is Dr. Laura Esserman, MD, MBA a cutting-edge breast surgeon and researcher at the University of California San Francisco’s Mt. Zion Hospital. In her role as a professor of surgery and director of the Carol Franc Buck Breast Care Center at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, Dr. Esserman is recognized as one of the top breast doctors in the U.S. for challenging the status quo of mainstream medicine with her groundbreaking work in breast cancer research through theAthena Breast Health Network, the Wisdom Study and the iSPY clinical trials. Watch this episode to learn more about Dr. Esserman’s innovative approach to treating – and preventing – breast cancer.
