Join the filmmaker, Carol Ciancutti-Leyva and Judy Norsigian, Executive Director of Our Bodies Ourselves, for a screening of the documentary "Absolutely Safe"

At a time when more women than ever are getting breast implants, fewer voices than ever seem to be asking “Why?” And fewer still are asking “Are they safe?” ABSOLUTELY SAFE takes an open-minded, personal approach to the controversy over breast implant safety.
