SABCS Under Way

SABCS LogoThe San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) held December 8-12, 2015 is designed to provide the latest experimental research on breast cancer and premalignant breast disease to an international audience of academic and private physicians and researchers.

BCC partner Grazia de Michele is attending this year’s symposium with a scholarship from Advocates for Breast Cancer. A fitting group to attend SABCS, the organization’s mission is to unite breast cancer advocates to fund groundbreaking research, share education, improve patient care and find a cure, stages 0-4.

The Alamo Breast Cancer Foundation (ABCF) based in San Antonio, TX established a vital Patient Advocate Program as a component of the SABCS in 1996 and also offers scholarships each year to patient advocates who have completed NBCC’s Project LEAD Scientific Institute and have scientific knowledge of breast cancer through various programs. Alamo runs the ‘Hot Topics’ sessions each year where researchers meet with advocates, discuss the findings, and answer questions.

You’ll find an overview of some of the key studies to be presented at this year’s SABCS at Cancer Today, the quarterly magazine of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR). Read More.

If you use twitter, there will be a Twitter chat on Friday, Dec. 11 at 2 p.m. ET, hosted by AACR and Cancer Today on research presented at SABCS as well as general topics of interest. Cancer Today (@CancerTodayMag) will moderate the chat. Follow along using the hashtag #sabcschat.
