SCS Lunch & Learn: Understanding the New Mammography Guidelines with Dr. Chan and Breastnet

The Virtual Lunch & Learn “Understanding the New Mammography Guidelines” with Dr. Chan and Arizona Breastnet’s Dr. Wolf was recorded for release on Tuesday, August 29, 2023.

In May 2023, the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) issued new recommendations for mammography. They now recommend that women start breast cancer screening at age 40 instead of the previously recommended starting age of 50.
