October 13, 2021 – October 16, 2021

The overall goal of this conference is to improve clinicians’ understanding of the spectrum of breast cancer treatment and provide strategies that can help translate data updates to improvements in patient care.


Dear Colleagues:

It is my pleasure and privilege to welcome you to this virtual conference, Perspectives in Breast Cancer Care: A Virtual Forum Designed to Solve Clinical Challenges and Improve Patient Outcomes. Over four days (Oct 13-16, 2021), this innovative CME/CE experience will take you on a unique learning journey, which begins when you enter the Virtual Conference Center. In this space, expert oncologists and clinicians will present the latest education in breast cancer and discuss practical application of emerging advances into clinical care. The comprehensive agenda includes the most relevant topics that impact breast cancer practice today. At a glance, these are:

  • Session I: News and Views: HR+ Breast Cancer
  • Session II: The HER2 View on Breast Cancer
  • Session III: Turning Negative into Positives in TNBC
  • Session IV: Case Challenges

Nationally renowned faculty experts will engage you and your fellow learners in the live virtual sessions. Take a seat in the  Live Theater where audience interaction will be enhanced by polling and ample time for questions. You will not be denied opportunities to share best practices and to find solutions to your most difficult clinical challenges. And, as in any live conference venue, you will find robust opportunities to interact with your colleagues beyond the educational sessions. There is much to explore, and comfortable walking shoes are not required!

I encourage you to take full advantage of these conference features, in which you can:

  • Benefit from peer-to-peer learning in the Virtual Poster Hall
  • Network with other breast cancer specialists and practitioners in the Lounge
  • Enjoy friendly and fast-paced competition via MedChallenge
  • Visit booths in the Exhibit Hall (without lugging a tote bag)

Should you be unable to attend, each recorded and accredited session will be available for on-demand access until December 2021. After that, an enduring summary webcast and downloadable components will be available on Medscape Oncology at www.medscape.org/conferences/breast-cancer-perspectives a webpage dedicated specifically to this conference. The educational content will be CME/CE-certified for an additional year.

Once again, Welcome! I hope you will enjoy this one-of-a-kind virtual conference, benefit from the learning opportunities, and gather many clinical pearls to “bring home” to your practice!
