18th Annual Breast Cancer Update

April 22, 2015

Save the date for the 18th Annual Breast Cancer Update to be held on Wednesday, April 22, 2015. Each spring, DBCC presents a symposium featuring leading medical experts and other speakers discussing the most current topics in breast cancer diagnosis, treatment, detection and survivorship. The annual one-day educational forum is free and open to the public, and has become one of Delaware’s most trusted sources of up-to date breast cancer information. More information coming soon.


DBCC is excited to present a excellent roster of speakers to address breast cancer treatment and survivorship. This year’s program reviews recent trends and advances in breast cancer treatment, and focuses on options for breast reconstruction. The in-depth review of breast reconstruction options includes not only the surgical techniques, but also outcomes as viewed both clinically and by women who have experienced the long-term outcomes of these options. Self-image, sexuality and health are all part of the presentations, and provide a holistic, patient-centered understanding to clinicians, as well as supporting the education of breast cancer survivors and the newly-diagnosed.

Certificates of attendance documenting 4.5 Contact Hours and .45 Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) will be available to Nurses and other healthcare professionals. Corexcel is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
