Breast Cancer Screening on Trial

Jewish Community Center of San Francisco

UCSF Logos



What should publicly funded programs cover?

Sponsored by the Center for Healthcare Value as part of the "Healthy Discourse" series and the UCSF National Center of Excellence in Women's Health.


                • At what age should average-risk women have a mammogram and how often should it be done?
                • How much screening should be covered by insurance and public programs like Medicare?
                • Does current coverage by publicly funded programs offer "good value" to the American public?


Join us for an interactive evening as we put mammogram screening guidelines “on trial” and explore the process of developing evidence-based coverage decisions.  We'll compare how decisions made by public funders may differ from those made by community members. 

As a member of the audience you will serve on a jury.  You will have a chance to ask questions from the expert witnesses, deliberate, and reach a verdict.  We will conclude with an open discussion.  


Seating is limited. RSVP is required.

Light refreshments will be served before the start of the program from 6:00-6:30pm.
