3rd Annual Breast Cancer Symposium: The Seasons of Breast Cancer

September 24, 2021 to September 26, 2021
The 3rd Annual Breast Cancer Symposium: The Seasons of Breast Cancer is being organized in collaboration with New York Oncology Hematology (NYOH), The University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, and myMedEd, Inc. With an expanded agenda, this accredited conference will offer 18.5 continuing education credits and is scheduled to be held September 24-26, 2021 at NYOHbcs.com.
 
Treatment options along with opportunities to tailor therapy for patients with breast cancer are evolving rapidly. Emerging evidence suggests that combination therapy with RT and check point inhibitors, as well as gene expression profiling, specifically the identification of intrinsic molecular subclassifications, and/or the use of novel biomarkers combined with traditional prognostic factors, may enhance treatment and improve outcomes. In addition, several new medications have been approved within the last year, and data on other emerging therapeutics has recently been published.

Novel medication approvals, variations in published guidelines, and the challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic necessitate evidence-based education to assist practitioners in providing optimal care for their patients with breast cancer.

Target Audience

Medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists as well as primary care physicians, gynecologists, medical professionals and health care professionals with an interest in breast cancer are invited to attend.

Learning Objectives

After completing this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Review the modern surgical approaches addressed in the patient encounter;
  • Discuss updates in breast cancer imaging for earlier detection;
  • Identify therapeutic advances in early and advanced hormone receptor-positive, HER2neu overexpressing, and triple-negative breast cancer;
  • Review advances in radiation therapy and outcomes;
  • Identify risk factors and endocrine interventions in patients’ high risk for developing breast cancer;
  • Discuss the role of hereditary genetics and the implication to the patient and their families.
