The Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, in conjunction with the UW Carbone Cancer Center, will host Healing Yoga for Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) Day on October 21, 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Promega in Fitchburg, Wisconsin. BRA Day is a national event designed to educate and inform breast cancer survivors about their post-cancer surgery breast reconstruction options.

Yoga practice will be led by former breast cancer and reconstruction patient and yogi Laura Flanagan, with live acoustic guitar by Joe Fred Paprocki. The evening will conclude with a social hour, during which surgeons from the breast reconstruction team will be available to answer participants’ questions. You can register for the event online.
