Dr. Galleshaw, who is recognized as a “national expert” on the program flyer, will discuss new advances in hormonal therapy.
Dr. Galleshaw, who was the principle investigator for the STAR Trial (study of tamoxifen and raloxifene) for breast cancer prevention in the Atlanta region, said she always enjoys speaking to the community about the latest in breast cancer treatment.
“Whether directly or indirectly, breast cancer affects everybody, and sharing the latest breakthroughs in care will help that much more in eventually finding a cure,” she said.
