UTMB Health's Department of Plastic Surgery will hold their annual Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) Day events on Wednesday, October 16. The day will kick off at 7:30 a.m. in Galveston to honor breast cancer survivors at our Jennie Sealy hospital. The event will then move to our newest campus in Clear Lake at 11:30 a.m. featuring breast health information for the community. Activities resume that evening at the League City Campus at 5:00 p.m. with a Myth Busters Q&A on breast health, a BRA decorating contest, and Ladies Night Out featuring vendors and food. It will be a great event to honor those who fought but lost their battle and encourage those still fighting breast cancer.
