Be inspired! Be informed! Join ABC News anchor Amy Robach and Susan Ford Bales (daughter of the late Betty and President Gerald Ford) at DeVos Place on October 8th for Candid Conversations, a free event made possible by Spectrum Health Betty Ford Breast Care Services.
Betty Ford was a pioneer in breast cancer awareness. When the tell-it-like-it-is First Lady went public about her BREAST CANCER DIAGNOSIS and treatment, she became the voice for openness, detection and treatment. Betty’s legacy continues as Amy talks about the pivotal moments in her own personal journey. Spectrum Health clinical experts will join Amy and Susan to talk about advancements in breast cancer care.
Come early to visit the FORCE booth at the health fair that starts at 3 p.m. Check out vendor booths and take home health information, discounts, giveaways and more. Candid Conversations kicks off with Amy at 4:15 p.m. The event ends at 6:15 p.m.
