Chicago Chapter Event: How to Save Your Own Life with Molecular Breast Imaging

Two months after receiving an “all clear” mammogram, Leslie Ferris Yerger was diagnosed with Stage IV lobular breast cancer when abnormalities were found during a routine bone density scan. While receiving treatment at Mayo Clinic, Leslie learned about a new breakthrough screening technology, Molecular Breast Imaging (MBI) that detects invasive breast cancers in women with dense breast tissues. Nearly one half of all women have dense breast tissues. This remarkable imaging test detects breast cancer at three times the rate of conventional screening tools when used in addition to mammography.

After treatment, Leslie vowed to change her life and use her unfortunate diagnosis to educate others and help advance the next generation of breast cancer screening technologies. She raised over $100,000 to advance further study of MBI technology and facilitated the donation of an MBI machine to Advocate Good Shepherd Breast Care Center.

Join us as we learn about MBI, Leslie’s transformative journey and what you can do to advocate for yourself.

Sit Back and Learn More About The Master of Suspense: Alfred Hitchcock

For five decades, first in England, then in Hollywood, he made fifty-four films, including classics such as The Thirty-Nine Steps, Rebecca, Notorious, Rear Window, North by Northwest, Vertigo, and Psycho. Few filmmakers have been as popular, critically celebrated, and as influential. This presentation looks at his achievements as “the master of suspense,” and through dozens of film clips, examines some of his extraordinary techniques as a director.

Please register by Thursday evening, October 29.  Zoom link sent Friday morning

We are beyond honored to be offering this very special Discover Webinar featuring Dr. Dolly Chugh, an award-winning psychologist and associate professor at the Stern School of Business at New York University.  Her research focuses on the “psychology of good people” and has been published in many top managerial and academic publications.

Dr. Chugh studies how and why most of us, however well-intended, are still prone to race and gender bias, as well as what she calls “bounded ethicality.”  Many of us believe in equality, diversity, and inclusion. The question is how we stand up for those values in these turbulent times.

Registration for this event includes a copy of her book, The Person You Mean to Be.
