UW plastic and reconstructive surgeons Samuel O. Poore, MD, PhD and Ahmed M Afifi, MD were joined by members of the UW Health Breast Center including Breast Center Director Lee G Wilke, MD , as well as patients and friends to celebrate and recognize the team approach to breast cancer care on October 16, 2013 – Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) Day. Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day is an initiative designed to promote education, awareness and access regarding post-mastectomy breast reconstruction.
This fun-filled morning kickstarted with a refreshing flow, followed by Q&A with our physicians and staff. Guests were welcomed by UW Health staff and provided a special pink yoga mat as a gift for joining the celebration.
