Come out and “drink pink” (a delicious pink super smoothie) as we celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is a great institute class to finish out our week of health education and prevention. The healthcare world is constantly evolving and advancing. We want you to stay informed and educated. We are thrilled to have Dr. Diana Dickson-Witmer present on the latest advances in breast health, the newest Rehoboth Beach location (and its offerings), and how our lifestyle can positively impact breast health.
Dr. Diana Dickson-Witmer is board certified in general surgery and specializes in breast surgery. She leads the Beebe Center for Breast Health.
Dr. Dickson-Witmer graduated from the University of Florida College of Medicine. She also served a residency there, as well as at the Medical Center of Delaware, where she was chief surgical resident in 1982.
In addition to her surgical and patient care experience, Dr. Dickson-Witmer is known for her trailblazing work in the field of breast surgery – setting the standard and developing the programs to train future surgeons in the field.
In 1994, she introduced stereotactic breast core needle biopsy to Delaware, and trained radiologists and surgeons in the technique. In 1997, she published results of the first 100 stereotactic core breast biopsies done in Delaware. Dr. Dickson-Witmer also introduced sentinel node biopsy to the Delaware valley in 1999 and published the results of a pilot study of the first 50 cases done at Christiana Care.
This is a complementary event provided by the Bayside Institute and Beebe Healthcare.
