Breast Cancer: New Horizons, Current Controversies is a comprehensive educational curriculum now in its 17th year of improving knowledge, competence, and clinical performance among medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, breast surgeons, general surgeons, internists, physician's assistants, nurse practitioners, oncology nurses, and other clinicians interested in the care of women with breast cancer. The primary goal of Breast Cancer: New Horizons, Current Controversies is to assist health care professionals who care for breast cancer patients with integrating evidence-based information on breast cancer screening, diagnosis, treatment, and long-term monitoring into their practices. This engaging four-day course offers a convergence of clinical experts in medical, surgical, and radiation oncology who will reinforce a multidisciplinary approach to translating scientific knowledge into practical applications in medicine. Interactive learning formats such as group case discussions, question and answer periods (Q&A), and panel presentations will assist clinicians in solving challenging clinical cases, addressing controversial topics, and developing practical treatment strategies. Breast Cancer: New Horizons, Current Controversies is specifically designed to assist breast cancer providers with self-assessing and improving their skills and competence in the diagnosis, treatment, and overall management of breast cancer. Emphasis is placed on incorporating emerging clinical trial evidence and novel therapies into current, expert-recommended best practices. Breast Cancer: New Horizons, Current Controversies takes place at a level similar to that of major national oncology conferences, but is at the same time specifically tailored to fill identified knowledge, competence, and performance gaps unique to practicing community oncologists.

This year, we are also excited to include a special scientific symposium on Saturday devoted to lobular breast cancer. Join experts from around the world to discuss the unique and important features of this breast cancer subtype.
