At the 2020 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, results were presented from a study on dietary supplement use by breast cancer survivors and how these supplements may interact with tamoxifen and the aromatase inhibitors. Maura is the lead researcher on the study.

Listen to the episode to hear Maura discuss:

  • why telling your doctor and/or a registered dietitian with oncology expertise about any and all the supplements you take is so important

  • why people may be getting more of a particular supplement than they realize

  • her advice for women who’ve been treated for breast cancer and are considering taking supplements
