SPEAKERS: Dr. Lisa Jacobs
TOPIC: Breast Cancer – Increasing Awareness and Improving Treatment
OCTOBER IS NATIONAL BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH
Dr. Jacobs specializes in melanoma and breast cancer. Her initial practice was at the University of Missouri at the Ellis Fischel State Cancer Center, which is the designated cancer center for the state. Since joining Johns Hopkins in 2004, she has taken a leadership role regarding clinical research trials for the surgical division of the Johns Hopkins Breast Center. In 2012, Dr. Jacobs established a new breast center at Howard County General Hospital. As director of that program, she treats patients with all types of breast disease and melanoma.
Dr. Jacobs has a clinical interest in treatment of early stage melanoma. She has worked closely with dermatologists and medical oncologists at Johns Hopkins University and Howard County General Hospital to improve awareness and care of melanoma patients by participating in educational programs and clinical research trials.
Breast cancer care has been a focus of Dr. Jacobs’s clinical practice since finishing her surgical oncology fellowship. Her primary clinical interest is in improving overall quality of life for breast cancer patients. To achieve that goal, she has initiated research programs in lymphedema and oncoplastic surgery, which attempts to increase the number of women eligible for breast preservation by combining lumpectomy with plastic surgery techniques to reshape the breast. In addition, she has research funding to investigate a new device that may reduce the number of surgeries required to achieve breast preservation.
