Naval Medical Corps

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA - An increased number of women are entering the military, and there is a growing need for military doctors to be able to diagnose, treat and comfort personnel (and their families) who have breast cancer. Because of these needs, Heidi was asked to address the men and women of the Naval Medical Corps in San Diego, California. This was a rare opportunity for the military staff to ask candid questions to a survivor from a patient’s perspective. By the end of the presentation, they were aware of clinical, emotional and physical needs of breast cancer patients and their families. Both the attendance and the awareness raised were so impressive, Heidi was asked to return in 6-9 months to speak again to the next group of medical personnel.
