Geisinger cancer doctors to participate in breast health panel


Danville, Pa. – Four Geisinger staff members are participating in a virtual roundtable discussion as a part of the Komen Breast Cancer Education Series: Am I High Risk and What Does That Mean? to promote breast cancer awareness. 

The roundtable, hosted on Tuesday, April 5, will provide an overview of what high risk for breast cancer means and how it is determined. It will cover screening options as well as how, when and why being at high risk is considered when building a treatment plan. 

Participants include Jacqueline Oxenberg, D.O., associate surgical oncologist and director of the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center; Mary Wolf, P.A., high-risk breast physician assistant; Rachel Schwiter, genetic counselor; and Tatianie Jackson, associate diagnostic radiologist. 

To register for the panel, visit whova.com. The event kicks off at 5 p.m. with a virtual networking session followed by the roundtable discussion.
