Breast Cancer Update

The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition's (DBCC) 22nd 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 forum 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 22nd Annual Breast Cancer Update was held on Wednesday, April 10, 2019 at Dover Downs Hotel and Convention Center, Ballrooms B and C in Dover from 7:45 a.m. to 2:15 p.m.

Co-chaired by Nanci Mayer-Mihalski and Marilyn Hyte Planning Committee: Connie Holdridge, Jan Jessup, Sally Maday, Mary McLaughlin, MD, Kelly Paustian, Amanda Perdue, Linda Powell, Meridith Rothstein, Lois Wilkinson, Dennis Witmer, MD, FACS, Katelyn Wright and Wilma Yu, MS, RN, CEN


As a result of this program, attendees will be able to:

1. Identify recent trends and advances in breast cancer including the most recent TAILORx trial results.

2. Describe the advances and treatment modality options available for triple negative breast cancer including the translational research and outreach initiatives.

3. Describe the role of Oncotype testing in both breast and prostate cancers.

4. Describe the various alternative/holistic/complementary therapies available for breast cancer patients including acupuncture.
