Program Overview

The 4th Annual Breast Cancer Symposium titled: OPENING DOORS: Lab to Clinic to Patient is being organized in collaboration with New York Oncology Hematology (NYOH), The University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, and myMedEd, Inc. This accredited conference will offer 16.5 continuing education credits and is scheduled to be held live in person September 23-25, 2022 at the Hudson Hall in Hudson, NY and as an online live broadcast at nyohbcs.org.

CONFERENCE PLATFORM

The 4th Annual Breast Cancer Symposium is being held live in person and online via a live broadcast. The sponsors and exhibitors of the conference will be available for attendees to visit during the duration of the conference in both platforms.

Educational Goal

Advances in our understanding of the genetic and physiologic pathways of breast cancer have led to the development of targeted systemic therapies, improved surgical procedures, and radiation techniques, and improved, disease-free, and overall survival benefits. The goal of this conference is to educate the medical and global community in a forum that will facilitate the utilization of optimal treatment strategies and foster communication that will benefit the individual patient as well as the community.
