HBOC Week Special Guest Speaker: Elizabeth Poynor, M.D., Ph.D.

Join with other previvors and survivors during HBOC Week to hear from our special guest speaker, Dr. Elizabeth Poynor, M.D., Ph.D., a gynecologic oncologist and advanced pelvic surgeon in private practice in New York. Dr. Poynor will speak about oopherectomy as it relates to those at high risk, addressing what's involved in the procedure, its risk-reducing effectiveness, side effects, managing menopausal symptoms, and primary peritoneal cancer, as well as whether removing only the fallopian tubes is an effective risk-reducing strategy. Ample time will be allotted for questions and answers.
