Typically, if someone asked “are you dense?” it would put you
emotional defense. But my guest today Nancy M. Cappello, Ph.D., wants you to think of breast defense when you hear the name of her organization. Nancy is the Director and Founder of Are You Dense and Are You Dense Advocacy, Inc. Both groups have a mission to educate the public about the particular risks and screening challenges of having dense breast tissue to prevent missed, delayed, and advanced-stage cancer, thus reducing mortality. She is the inspiration behind Connecticut’s first-in-the-nation density reporting law passed in 2009, making the state a global leader in density reporting, adjunct screening, and the density reporting grassroots movement.
