Breast Cancer Alliance’s Yonni Wattenmaker

The Breast Cancer Alliance is doing incredible things for patients. Their research and advocacy on behalf of those who have, had or will have the disease is helping to create a better future for healthcare overall.

You may wonder why the National Spine Health Foundation is partnering for an interview with a breast cancer organization. The reality is, many health conditions overlap with one another and pain can be both a part of spine health and breast cancer. Both of our organizations also participate in important research projects for the betterment of the healthcare community.

We’re working with Breast Cancer Alliance to present an important webinar titled “Advances in Pain Management” This upcoming event will feature:

  • Dr. Niteesh Bharara, Director, Regenerative Medicine, Virginia Spine Institute
  • Dr. Alka Gupta, CMO and Co-Founder, Bluerock Care
  • Dr. Suzanne LeBlang, Director of Clinical Relationships, Focused Ultrasound Foundation
  • Ethan Ruby, Founder, Theraplant

We were lucky enough to be able to speak one-on-one with Yonni, who is the Executive Director of Breast Cancer Alliance. What research is working? What innovations can be we be hopeful for? How does pain overlap with breast cancer? Watch our interview with Yonni to learn more and sign up for our free webinar here.
