I am honored to be a part of an advocacy program for Breast Density Awareness in Ireland. Beingdense.com was started by Siobhan Freeney, a breast cancer survivor since 2015. She is following in the footsteps of Dr. Nancy Cappello in promoting awareness of breast density in Ireland. Have a look at her website and blog page.
"Being Dense is incredibly excited to introduce you to the newest member of our team, Radiology Expert, Dr Julie Gershon. Dr Julie worked with Nancy Cappello on the Areyoudense.org US advocacy and we are honored that she has agreed to support Beingdense.com by agreeing to be our Medical Advisor. Julie S. Gershon, M.D. is a board certified breast radiologist in Avon, Connecticut.
