In-person attendance adds value to SABCS

Registration

Planning on coming to San Antonio for #SABCS22? Register now for discounts.

The year the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium was conceived, the U.S. death rate from female breast cancers was 32.48 per 100,000 cases. Today it is less than 19.38.

Since its humble beginnings as a one-day, regional meeting, it has grown into a five-day program attracting an international audience of academic and private researchers and physicians from over 90 countries. For more than 40 years they have descended on San Antonio to learn the latest on the experimental biology, etiology, prevention, diagnosis, and therapy of breast cancer and premalignant breast disease.

Much of the appeal is the opportunity for researchers to meet colleagues they may have only collaborated with remotely. Students and budding researchers can meet the scientists and physicians on whose shoulders they stand, working toward the latest advances in breast cancer research. It’s why in-person attendance remains such an important aspect of the annual conference.

“You can’t dissect the latest educational session or plenary lecture with colleagues over a digital connection,” Director of Symposia Sharon Hill said. “The value offered by each SABCS is the opportunity to meet in an informal setting with people you have not seen in a year or will not see for another year. Nothing can replicate the experience of attending in person.”

Registration and housing reservations for #SABCS22 are open now. Discounts on registration fees and hotel rooms are available through Oct. 31, 2022. Again, this year, patient advocates may register for free.

In-person attendees are eligible for AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM.
