Education & Training
Part of our commitment at New Horizons is to educate doctors and the public about women’s cancers. We have been asked by churches, women’s groups, corporate organizations and the American Cancer Society to speak at numerous gatherings on the topics of breast and gynecologic cancers. Time permitting, we enjoy taking these opportunities to share what we have learned through experience. Taking an active role in promoting good health begins with education, and we believe that it is important for everyone to know about prevention, screening programs, and cancer in general.

If you are interested in scheduling a cancer education event, please call us at New Horizons,
