Your Questions Answered on BIA-ALCL

Thank you for your interest in this educational webcast experience, Recognition by Primary Care Clinicians Worldwide of BIA-ALCL in Breast Implants: Only Touching the Surface. This activity will be presented via the myCME Town Wall® forum, a dynamic, collaborative, and interactive virtual continuing medical education (CME)-certified meeting.

LEARN FROM THE EXPERTS THE SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF BREAST IMPLANT–ASSOCIATED ANAPLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA (BIA-ALCL)
The goal of the activity is to heighten primary care providers’ index of suspicion for and recognition of the early signs of BIA-ALCL and other breast-implant illnesses and to underscore the important role that primary care clinicians worldwide can play in educating their patients with breast implants about potential complications.

Joining your colleagues from around the world right from your computer in a virtual CME meeting has never been quite so interactive. You’ll be greeted by our in-studio moderator, who will introduce you to a global, multidisciplinary faculty panel—all of whom will appear on an expansive, vast, live digital video “wall” from their remote locations. Not only can the experts see and interact with each other throughout the webcast...so can you!
