26th Annual Alamo Advocate Program
December 5 - December 8Free
The Alamo Breast Cancer Foundation is hosting its 26th Annual Advocate Program at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) from December 5, 2023 – December 8, 2023. This year’s program will be in person and virtual and will include panels, interviews, and Hot Topic Sessions. This event is free to advocates.
Patient advocates experience an intense learning environment at the annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS). In conjunction with the scientific sessions, advocates are provided with an opportunity to interact with leading medical experts during ABCF’s Hot Topics Mentor Sessions, which are held live on three consecutive evenings during the conference.
The panel of experts at the Mentor Sessions report on the most intriguing, valuable, and/or controversial research presented that day and then take questions from the in-person and virtual audiences. The Mentor Sessions, which are live-streamed, are the premier event for advocates attending SABCS, providing them the opportunity to interact with recognized breast cancer experts in an intimate learning environment.
ABCF also partners with the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) to present a live-streamed educational program for all patient advocates who attend SABCS, either in person or virtually. This lecture by a leading breast cancer researcher is designed to help patient advocates better understand the basic science of the disease.
Additionally, Advocate Chats are prerecorded interviews between an advocate and an expert in cancer research, policy, or care. These chats, which are 15-to-45-minute discussions, are available for viewing on the Alamo Breast Cancer Foundation YouTube Channel.
