Each year AiRS sets up bright pink tables with many volunteers available--and the best cupcakes in town--as both employees and patients enter these 3, multi-story, medical buildings. There are many plastic surgeons in the buildings, allowing AiRS to reach a targeted audience.
The event will take place in the beautiful Samuel Lynne Gallery located in the Design District of Dallas. Drs. Haddock and Teotia will provide valuable presentations, complete with before and after photos, for the benefit of those in attendance. Selected patients will be sharing their experiences about their breast reconstruction journey.
The Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at MD Anderson Cancer Center will host a symposium to educate breast cancer patients regarding breast reconstruction and other post-mastectomy options. The goals of this event are to raise awareness of breast reconstruction by providing accurate, unbiased information, and to share the role of plastic surgery in the breast cancer journey. In addition to the BRA Symposium, the department will also host a BRA Day Patient Education Table (Wednesday, 10/18/17), and multiple breast reconstruction-related community outreach events.
