All members of the cancer care team who are interested in learning about current advances in breast cancer research; translational science that will impact the future of breast cancer care; and the effects of COVID-19 on patient outcomes are encouraged to participate.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Discuss recent advancements in the treatment of HER2-positive, ER-positive, and triple-negative breast cancer. 
  2. Evaluate the use of genomic assays and biomarkers for managing patients with breast cancer. 
  3. Apply skills and strategies about localized therapies to the care of patients with breast cancer.
