15th Annual Breast Cancer Conference

The 15th Annual Breast Cancer Conference will be held on Friday, October 15 at the Sheraton Burlington Hotel and Conference Center.

About the Conference (from the conference web site)

“The Annual Breast Cancer Conference, presented by the Vermont Cancer Center at UVM/Fletcher Allen, is committed to serving the needs of men and women in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Northern New York who are interested in learning about breast health. The conference is also strongly attended by many of the region’s healthcare professionals. In 2011, more than 500 people attended the event, with representation from several New England states, including every county in Vermont, and nearly all counties of New Hampshire and Northern New York

The Vermont Cancer Center aims to educate, empower, and inspire Breast Cancer Conference participants to make healthy lifestyle choices to prevent cancer or its recurrence, to seek breast health maintenance, and to advocate for cancer prevention and high-quality breast care in our region. The primary goal for the conference is to be a trusted resource of information and educational opportunities for as many individuals as possible who have been touched by cancer, and their families, friends, and healthcare providers. Tantamount to that goal are the objectives of providing attendees with the most accurate and timely information available regarding the complex issues related to breast cancer and to inspire participants to maintain a healthy lifestyle, proactively seek healthcare maintenance, and advocate for high-quality breast care and health.

Our hope is that attendees will leave the event feeling more informed about their health and the myriad complexities of breast cancer, more empowered to make healthy lifestyle choices, and stronger and more hopeful for their experience of attending the conference.”
