VPO Press Release - Living Beyond Breast Cancer Opens Registration For Sept 27th Fall Conference In Philadelphia

VPO Press Release - Living Beyond Breast Cancer Opens Registration For Sept 27th Fall Conference In Philadelphia | Upcoming Cancer Conferences | Scoop.it

"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."

Complete conference details including how to register, travel grant and fee waiver eligibility, general session and breakout session descriptions and information on the conference's speakers are available at lbbc.org/fallconference or by calling (855) 807-6386.

Transcripts, video and MP3 podcasts of select presentations will also be available online following the conference.

This sounds terrible. I could imagine the pain and agony the patient went through .

 

I once had a bad tooth ..the dentist said he had to wait for the swelling to subside before extraction could be done.. I had to endure the pain for a night but it was not way compare to the pain this this patient went to ..

 

An Oncology once told me that pain is manageable when pain relief medicine is available..
