Institution Or Educational Program

Arizona Institute For Breast Health

Arizona Institute for Breast Health was formed in 1998 by local breast cancer experts Drs. Coral Quiet and Belinda Barclay-White. Their focus was to offer women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer a second opinion, completely free of charge. There is no other non-profit organization in the country doing this. AIBH has created an unparalleled synergy between medical professionals, patients and their families to provide information, education, resources, hope and peace of mind.

Being diagnosed with breast cancer is overwhelming, and the realization is difficult to comprehend. But knowledge is power. AIBH seeks to inform and educate so that patients are empowered in their battle against breast cancer. To date, AIBH has worked with thousands of women and their families – and not only to provide second opinions. In fact, they also provide free support, resources, fitness and nutrition advice and more.
More specifically, when Dr. Quiet came to Arizona, 80 percent of women with breast cancer were treated with mastectomy. Now that women have the knowledge to know their options, that number is only 40 percent. Breast conservation has skyrocketed since the organization began educating the community and women diagnosed about all of their options.
