Plastic Surgeons at Ohio State University on Breast Cancer Awareness and BRA Day

COLUMBUS, OH -- (Marketwire) -- 10/10/12 -- The doctors of The Ohio State University Plastic Surgery seek "to restore wholeness" through education as part of their mission statement. This goal of raising awareness in regard to restoration aligns with Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) Day, which will be celebrated internationally on October 17th. Marking the first year it will be celebrated in the United States, BRA Day is a day of activism that focuses on patient awareness, patient education, and patient access in regard to post-mastectomy breast reconstruction. The OSU Department of Plastic Surgery is part of the OSU College of Medicine, which was recently named one of the nation's best medical schools in U.S. News & World Report. As a division of an academic institution, OSU Plastic Surgery is dedicated to the education of patients as well as doctors.

OSU Plastic Surgery houses its own Breast Reconstruction Center, equipped with professionals specially trained with a sensitivity to the physical and emotional aspects of losing one or both breasts. While the removal of breast tissue can be a life-saving procedure, the surgeons and staff at the OSU Breast Reconstruction Center know the toll the process takes on patients can be very high. As they focus on answering each patient's concerns and questions about breast reconstruction, their aim is to help patients through this period with advanced breast reconstruction options that can provide a renewed sense of confidence and restore what has been lost.

Seven out of ten women are unaware of their options regarding breast reconstruction, according to the BRA Day website. Most mastectomy patients are eligible for breast reconstruction surgery, and each Columbus plastic surgeon at OSU Plastic Surgery operates with an understanding of the physical, as well as the emotional, benefits of the procedure. The OSU surgeons say post-mastectomy breast reconstruction can increase a patient's self-confidence without interfering with any aspect of cancer treatment, including future screenings.

The BRA Day campaign combines the efforts of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, The Plastic Surgery Foundation, and medical professionals directly involved in breast reconstruction, as well as breast cancer support groups. Originating in Canada in 2011, the event is now celebrated internationally and will take place annually on the third Wednesday of October. The Ohio State University Plastic Surgery, a Columbus plastic surgery practice, is happy to assist the cause of raising awareness about reconstructive options for women. Their surgeons are united in their mission of patient education and helping women rebuild what they have lost, with natural-looking results.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
