The 2021 College of the Canyons Women’s Conference is scheduled to be held virtually March 25-27 with a lineup of presenters and breakout sessions centered around the theme “Empowered Women: Health, Wellness, and Balance.” 

The conference’s keynote speakers will be Dr. Jane Dascalos and Dr. Mona Ranade from UCLA Health, who will discuss the importance of breast imaging and interventional radiology in women’s health. 

“We are very excited to host a three-day Women’s Conference this year,” said Rian Medlin, chair of the Women’s Conference Committee and human resources director, recruitment and employee services at the college. “We hope attendees learn to live healthy, empowered and balanced lives, which is important now more than ever.” 

The conference is scheduled 4-8 p.m. Thursday, March 25, 4-7 p.m. Friday, March 26, and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 27. 

The keynote speeches are to be from 9-10 a.m. Saturday, March 27. 

In “Radiology Imaging of the Breast — the Basics / Vision to Heal: Interventional Radiology and Women’s Health,” Dascalos will explore how the breast imaging radiologist physician utilizes different imaging modalities to evaluate breast health. She will discuss early detection through screening and how other patient concerns can be evaluated by physical exam, breast ultrasound, mammography, and breast MRI.   

Ranade will discuss the importance of sophisticated medical imaging in the treatment of painful and chronic conditions, such as uterine fibroids, without surgery. Interventional radiology offers advanced diagnostic imaging and specialized, minimally invasive treatments for many common health conditions in women.
