Objectives
• Identify the most common cancers in women
• Interpret valid results from the WHI and other relevant research specific to breast and endometrial
cancer
• Utilize data to appropriately prescribe HRT in high risk individuals

Session Description
After the WHI, providers and patients alike developed a generalized fear of hormones. Fortunately, all
hormones are not created equal. Although fear and controversy still exist regarding hormones and the
connection with cancer, we now have further data to determine best medical practice to individualize
patient care.
