 Healthcare participating surgeons and gynecologists.
 What: Continuing Medical Education Seminar on Fine Needle
 Aspiration Breast Biopsy (FNAB).
 Where: U.S. Healthcare, 1424 Union Meeting Road, Blue Bell, Pa.
 When: Thursday, May 14, 3 p.m.
 Details:
 The focus of this seminar is a method of breast biopsy which offers women an option to what is traditionally a surgical procedure. Fine Needle Aspiration, developed several years ago, is only now gaining widespread recognition. More than 160 surgeons and gynecologists attending will learn about the innovative technique, which involves the removal of small tissue fragments with a syringe. The procedure can be performed in a doctor's office rather than a hospital, requires no anesthesia or surgical incision, and very seldom causes complications. U.S. Healthcare's sponsorship of the seminar is consistent with its commitment to providing access to high-quality medical care. It marks the first time an HMO insurer has provided this level of training and support to physicians within an HMO network.
 Note: Cady and Atkinson are available for interviews with the media.
