Hot Topics in Breast Cancer – Luncheon and Medical Symposium
April 10, 2019 @ 11:30 am UTC+0$150
Breast Cancer Alliance (BCA) partners with DC area medical experts to bring a world-class medical symposium “Hot Topics in Breast Cancer.” The panel, consisting of leaders in the field, will discuss new advances that can play a significant role in improving risk assessment, prevention and treatment for breast cancer. The morning will help inform women about how to take action: for themselves, their daughters, mothers, sisters and friends.
This event will not only help to build awareness of our work as we grow, but our partnership with DC-area institutions will also allow us to support underserved women’s breast health needs in the Washington DC local community.
