Goal

The upcoming inaugural conference titled: Breast Cancer & Survivorship in the 21st Century, is an accredited educational program developed by New York Oncology Hematology (NYOH), in collaboration with the Center for Emergency Medical Education (CEME), and a panel of expert faculty from the academic, research, and community practice settings.

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.

TARGET AUDIENCE

This symposium is designed for medical professionals and the lay audience. The morning program will address the updates in diagnosing, treating, and managing the multiple breast cancer diagnoses we encounter daily. Medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists, as well as primary care physicians, gynecologists, medical professionals, and health care professionals with an interest in breast cancer and its survivorship are invited. The afternoon program will address lifestyle issues that can benefit the emotional, physical, and sexual well-being of the patient during treatment, after treatment, and in survivorship. The late afternoon program will present a panel of experts available to address questions from the patient, advocate, and survivor.
