Breast cancer represents a complicated family of diseases for which detection, diagnosis, and multimodal management strategies continually are evolving. Therefore, practice-focused education will enable you to integrate the highest- quality methodologies into the treatment of your patients. For 17 years, the multidisciplinary Annual Breast Cancer Symposium has met this educational need—bringing together surgical, medical, and radiation oncologists, as well as geneticists, radiologists, pathologists, and nurses—to improve the care for patients with breast cancer.

Register today for the early bird discount $125, by Sept. 9th!
