In November, 2009 the United States Preventive Services Task Force released a report questioning the merits of routine mammography screening.

Recommendations from the report have sparked criticism among women's advocacy groups and medical professionals alike. But is such criticism deserved?

A panel of experts helped illuminate the facts and values behind all sides of this heated issue during a public forum on March 24, 2010. Forum panelists included:

  • J. Tony Madeira, MD, mammography radiologist, Saint Luke's Health System
  • Karin McCrary, RN, BSN, Senior Director of Operations, Saint Luke's Cancer Institu
  • Kari Miller, grants and education coordinator, Susan G. Komen Foundation, Kansas City, Missouri
  • Stephen Salanski, MD, Program Director, Research Family Medicine Residency
  • Ian M. Rosbrugh, M.D. , F.A.C.O.G., Heartland Women's Health Care
  • Summer Johnson, PhD, executive editor, American Journal of Bioethics
