Due to Hurricane Harvey, we rescheduled our Stereotactic Breast Biopsy for October 21, 2017 here in Houston.  You may attend this popular eight hour course conducted inside the stereotactic biopsy room at our affiliate hospital.  You will gain hands-on equipment experience for both prone and upright procedures.  Space is limited so sign up quick!

**The course will be conducted at one of AHEC’s clinical affiliates. Please look for an email a week before the course with the directions and parking information.  If you need to book your hotel, the course will most likely be in the Texas Medical Center area.
