The 13th Annual International Congress on the Future of Breast Cancer®
serves as an update on advances in the breast cancer field with a focus on the clinical implications of breast cancer genetic and phenotypic subtyping. Novel agents, strategies, and improved regimens are changing the future of breast cancer therapy, and these advances and their clinical impact are highlighted throughout the program. Current controversies in the field are also addressed and debated, and new data presented along with information about how to optimally individualize breast cancer therapy. This conference provides a unique opportunity for medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists and other health care professionals to learn from and interact with international leaders in breast cancer in order to increase knowledge, apply new data to practice, and ultimately improve patient outcomes.
This educational activity is directed toward medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists interested in the treatment of patients with breast cancer. Fellows, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, researchers, and other health care professionals interested in the treatment of breast cancer may also participate.
