"LBBC designed this conference so that participants can easily access information that is relevant to their specific situation," says LBBC CEO Jean Sachs, MSS, MLSP. "Our attendees can follow one of our breast-cancer-specific tracks or they can attend sessions on topics of their choosing. These will include workshops and discussion groups for young women, women at high risk for developing breast cancer, and healthcare providers seeking to better understand the psychosocial needs of people impacted by the disease."
"The conference design recognizes a trend we have been seeing in individuals wanting specific information about their diagnoses and treatments," says Catherine Ormerod, MSS, MLSP, LBBC's vice president of programs and partnerships. "At the same time, they also want to network with others and share the experiences that are common to all attendees."
The day will therefore feature social time for attendees, and a closing general session that will bring conference goers together for an interactive conversation with Weiss and Borges. The two will explore quality of life issues across the breast cancer spectrum during "Thriving! A Discussion on Living Well: Body, Mind and Soul."
