To give women the information and support they need to be proactive about their breast health, White Plains Hospital, in collaboration with I Am More Scarsdale, will host, “Breast Cancer & Beyond,” on Wednesday, October 6 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Dine the ‘Dale Tent in Scarsdale Village on Spencer Place between Harwood Court and East Parkway.

Additional topics will be driven by audience interest, and may include general health risk factors, facts about gynecological cancers, and small changes women can make to live a healthier life.
