Often referred to as one of the “founding mothers” of the movement to eradicate breast cancer, Dr. Susan Love has promoted one goal above all else: stop the disease once and for all. And she believes with public awareness, education campaigns and revolutionary vaccines, this generation could be the one to do it. President Bill Clinton appointed Dr. Love to serve on the National Cancer Advisory Board; she also oversees an active research program centered on breast cancer cause and prevention, is a clinical professor of surgery at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine and is the author of the book the New York Times called “the bible for women with breast cancer,” Dr. Susan Love’s Breast Book. Now in its fifth edition, the book serves as a guide for women facing a diagnosis of cancer. It seems that if Dr. Love gets her way we won’t need her book anymore – bet she would be just fine with that.

Guest:

Dr. Susan Love (MD, MBA), President and founder of the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation and Clinical Professor of Surgery at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine
