Breast Cancer Update

The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition's (DBCC) 23rd Annual Breast Cancer Update began as a small scientific meeting to update physicians about the latest trends in breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Recognizing the importance of bringing the most up-to-date information to all health professionals, breast cancer survivors, and the general public, the program has grown to an annual conference of more than 430 attendees.

It is our goal to have programming that empowers our community in the fight against breast cancer. The Annual Breast Cancer Update allows us to bring nationally renowned speakers in the breast cancer field and gives us the opportunity to educate the community about the innovative research, treatment, and programs that are available in Delaware.

The 23rd Annual Breast Cancer Update was held on Wednesday, February 10, 2021, virtually via Zoom.

Chaired by Marilyn Hyte Planning Committee: Bender, Katelyn Cooke, Vicky Holdridge, Connie Hyte, Marilyn Jessup, Jan Maday, Sally McLaughlin, Mary Murray, Susan Paustian, Kelly Powell, Linda Perdue, Amanda Rothstein, Meridith Vogel, Francesca Wilkinson, Lois Witmer, Dennis Yu, Wilma
