This year’s, Just for You: Personalized Breast Care symposium is focused on recognizing that a breast cancer diagnosis impacts each person differently.

The half-day symposium begins at 9 a.m. (registration and exhibits open at 8:30 a.m.) and will feature two panel discussions by a group of multidisciplinary physicians and medical experts who will discuss advances and new approaches in breast care to meet the unique needs of each individual.
