Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Tool - Public Launch, NOW Online!

Yesterday night at 7 pm in the very fine artistic and noble setting of the Chandos House in central London, CancerBackup and MacMillan - large and important UK charities active in cancer support - have presented the launch of OPERA (Online Personal Risk Assessment Tool), the first online instrument to enable a personal and tailored risk assessment of breast cancer.
We enjoyed the event very much, and we are happy to see a great support from the people active in the cancer support field.

The development of OPERA has been funded by CancerBackUp, and design and realized by the TEC-Lab (our team!!!) and by the Institute of Health Communication of the University of Lugano.

Our teams in Lugano have done a great job!

OPERA is officially online starting from today, and it is now accessible to the general public for use.
OPERA is accessible from the MacMillan website and
from CancerBackup website .
We hope for further development of OPERA for other types of cancer risk assessment and for widespread usage.
