The Blanchard Valley Health System and Mayo Clinic are set to present an educational “Live & Learn” event on Thursday, November 30, 2023. This presentation will focus on the science behind the prevention and treatment of breast cancer.

The speakers for this event will include Dr. Bill Kose, vice president of special projects for BVHS; Dr. Derek Thomas, a physician with The Armes Family Cancer Care Center; and Dr. Sandhya Pruthi, a physician with Mayo Clinic. These experts will discuss the latest research and advancements in the prevention and treatment of breast cancer.

As a member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, Blanchard Valley Health System is the first Ohio-based healthcare provider to have this distinction. This partnership allows BVHS to work closely with Mayo Clinic specialists to provide the most advanced medical knowledge and treatment options to patients in Northwest Ohio.

By collaborating with Mayo Clinic, BVHS doctors can access the latest research, diagnostic tools, and treatment recommendations. This allows them to develop personalized treatment plans for their patients, including those with cancer. BVHS physicians also have the opportunity to consult with Mayo Clinic experts and submit cases for evaluation.

The presentation will take place on Zoom from noon to 1 p.m., and interested viewers can visit to view it live or at a later time. Questions can be submitted in advance by emailing [email protected], and further assistance can be obtained by calling 419-423-5551
