MEET OUR KEYNOTE SPEAKER


Sheri Prentiss, MD, MPH

Prepare to be inspired by Dr. Sheri. She’s a proven visionary, author and highly sought-after physician leader and public health expert. As a breast cancer survivor, she’ll share her story of how she was enjoying a full life as a successful young doctor with a beautiful family when breast cancer disrupted everything. It tested her strength to endure 15 rounds of chemotherapy, 33 rounds of radiation, surgeries and disabling lymphedema.

In spite of it all, Dr. Sheri emerged victorious as a Susan G. Komen Foundation leader, having been featured in the New England Journal of Medicine, MORE, Essence, Oxygen and Chicago Tribune, in addition to many TV and radio interviews. She’s recently founded a non-profit organization, the LIVE-Today Foundation, devoted to enhancing life for breast cancer survivors, especially those with lymphedema. Dr. Sheri invites you to hear her story and learn her four easy steps to L.I.V.E. every day. So put on your pink, and join us for an event near you. The events are all free but space is limited, so register today. You can register online below or call toll free 855-MYVIDANT (855-698-4326).

OTHER BREAST CANCER EVENTS

Early detection of breast cancer can save lives. That’s why we are empowering women across eastern North Carolina in the fight against breast cancer with free clinical breast exams at select locations. The private screenings will be performed by breast specialists trained to recognize abnormalities and warning signs. They will check for lumps and physical changes that may warrant further evaluation. All screenings are free but registration is required.

CANCER SERVICES AT VIDANT

No matter where you are on your journey – being proactive to prevent cancer, a newly diagnosed patient, someone undergoing treatment or someone proudly standing as a survivor – Vidant Health is with you all the way.

The Pink Power Tour is just one way we spread the word about early detection, regular screenings and advanced treatment options. We also invite you to take a breast cancer risk assessment, and share it with your friends and neighbors. Our website offers tons of valuable educational materials about breast cancer and explains the benefits of 3D mammography. You can read about the multidisciplinary team that is ready to care for you when you need it. 

In the coming months, you’ll hear more about the new Cancer Center and Bed Tower at Vidant Medical Center, set to open spring 2018. The new center will allow us to improve early detection while identifying new and innovative approaches to treatment and prevention.
