      Breast Cancer Alliance Hot Topics in Breast Cancer: Luncheon and Medical Symposium

      Breast Cancer Alliance (BCA) partners with DC area medical experts to bring a world-class medical symposium “Hot Topics in Breast Cancer: Luncheon and Medical Symposium.” 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.
