Health Pearl #527: Christine Horner, MD, FACS Lecture by Gesundheit with Jacobus published on 2013/06/12 22:01:20 +0000 When Angelina Jolie recently announced that she was having double mastectomy surgery because she tested positive for a specific cancer gene, it seemed like an isolated incident, but it could become a trend… Jolie’s action opened discussions about how to be pro-active in fighting or avoiding a cancer diagnosis, in this case breast cancer. This Saturday afternoon, June 15, you can hear more about this during a free lecture at the Hilton Garden Inn, at 4:00 o’clock. Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Christine Horner will share her insights and observations after years of performing reconstructive surgery on women with mastectomies because of breast cancer. Dr. Horner’s concern grew when women as young as in their twenties had the procedure done and she felt that more education was needed. If you, or someone you know has concerns about breast health, breast cancer, or if you have had a lumpectomy or mastectomy, you WANT to hear Dr. Christine Horner this Saturday afternoon, at 4 o’clock, at the Hilton Garden Inn.
