CDC, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Public Health, the Association of Schools of Public Health, and the Public Health Training Network will cosponsor "Breast Cancer Screening: More Than Just Mammograms," on September 29, 1999, at 2-3 p.m. eastern time. The broadcast will be delivered through satellite downlink to sites nationwide and through an Internet webcast. Continuing education credit will be offered for various professions based on 1 hour of instruction.

This second in the series of Public Health Grand Rounds will feature a case demonstrating how a screening program can save lives. Participants will discuss the challenges of screening programs and the strategies implemented to meet them. The goal of this program is to promote a leadership-level national dialogue on breast cancer screening and the outreach efforts of state and local public health agencies.

This videoconference targets professionals from local, state, and federal health agencies; community and women's health centers; academic institutions; managed-care organizations; and others who want to learn more about breast cancer and improve the life expectancy of women at risk.
