Dr. Kemp also was quoted in the ABIM Foundation newsletter on her work with Choosing Wisely. Read it here.

Corinne Jordan, MD, is working to empower breast cancer patients to decrease their mortality and improve their quality of life. “This enables them to take some control back during an otherwise anxious time,” she said. “Our patients are grateful for this opportunity.” To read more about Dr. Jordan’s work, visit http://www.fpanetwork.org/PhysiciansClinics/Marketingandcommunications/FPAeUpdate/toc/S_125887
