Laurie Zlotnick, Fierce Females’ founder, organized this event after a recent annual check-up. “At my last mammogram, the tech was sharing information with me about new testing – including 3D mammography. I realized it was a long time since I had really learned about advances in breast cancer testing. I felt a sense of urgency about getting this information out, so decided to create this event as a way to solve for this need. After all, Fierce Females advocate for ourselves and each other.”

Registration is being managed in partnership with locally-based General Store Cooperative. Please visit .
