2nd Annual Breast Cancer Symposium

September 25, 2020 to September 26, 2020
Advances in breast cancer health have been growing exponentially during the twenty-first century and identification of novel therapeutic strategies have led to improved surgical and radiation outcomes. Actionable targets have identified smarter systemic therapies with improved, disease-free, overall survival benefits. In addition to awareness, addressing the health, emotional, and physical well-being of patients after breast cancer treatment have improved the overall quality of life for the patient and their families. As breast cancer is a multimodal disease, the purpose of this conference is to present the multiple facets that constitute the individual patient’s diagnosis, management, and treatment. The goal of this conference is to educate the medical and global community in a forum to foster communication that will benefit the individual patient as well as the community.
