The Emerging Medical Professionals Program is centered on a proprietary, research-based lecture entitled "Breast and Ovarian Cancer: A Practical Approach to Risk Stratification and Management in Young Women."

Similarly, these doctors weren't consistently speaking to all young women, high-risk or otherwise, about breast and ovarian cancer prevention and early detection strategies, because these diseases only came to the forefront of their minds when caring for their older patients.
