Breast Cancer Update

The 21st Annual Breast Cancer Update will be held on April 10th at Dover Downs Hotel and Convention Center, in Dover, DE. Visit our event website by clicking here for more information.


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.

The Breast Cancer Update is one of many ways that DBCC uses its funds locally to benefit and serve the people of Delaware and its surrounding communities. This annual one-day educational forum attracts crowds of physicians, nurses, breast cancer survivors and advocates each year.

DBCC is excited to present an excellent roster of speakers to address breast cancer treatment and survivorship. This year's program will:

  • This year’s event will identify recent trends and changes to breast cancer treatment
  • overview the newly released American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) staging criteria and impact for patients
  • describe advances in breast cancer radiation modality, options and techniques
  • outline the role of a Nurse Navigator
  • and identify common side effects and offer a holistic approach to enhance patient recovery
  • Certificates of attendance documenting 4 Contact Hours and .4 Continuing Education Units (CEU's) will be available to Nurses and other healthcare professionals.
