A Word From the President
Welcome to the first annual Breast Cancer Symposium, a new peer-reviewed scientific and educational meeting. This meeting emphasizes multidisciplinary research on clinical and translational breast cancer research and is co-sponsored by the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), the American Society of Breast Disease, the American Society of Breast Surgeons, the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology, and the Society of Surgical Oncology.
To help inform people about progress in cancer, ASCO publishes Cancer Advances, a series of consumer information resources. Breast Cancer Advances: News for Patients from the Breast Cancer Symposium provides the latest information about breast cancer care and treatment. The information in this issue was presented at the 2007 Breast Cancer Symposium held in San Francisco, California, from September 7-8, 2007.
I am enthusiastic about the new developments in breast cancer. For more news and information from the Breast Cancer Symposium, visit ASCO's patient website, People Living With Cancer (www.plwc.org) and read the ASCO Expert Corner: Research Highlights from the 2007 Breast Cancer Symposium or listen to a special PLWC Podcast.
