Greenwood Village, CO (December 8, 2014) When the prestigious San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) convenes on December 9th in San Antonio, TX, providers from across the Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers’ (RMCC) network, will be among those presenting their research findings to an international audience of researchers and physicians from more than 90 countries.
Abstracts presented will include, “Experience in the community oncology practice with a 25-gene hereditary cancer panel,” written by Dr. Sami Diab, and “Empower Your Recovery” written by Dr. Robert Fisher, Marianne Stenhouse, LCSW, OSW-C and Anh Lai-O’Connell, LCSW.
Dr. Scot Sedlacek, Dr. Diab, Barbara Hamlington, MS, CGC, Brittney Goetsch, MS, CGC, Katie Storm, MS, CGC and Dr. Lucy Langer of the US Oncology Compass practice in Portland are co-authors of the poster that will be presented entitled, “Utilizing next generation sequencing technologies for hereditary breast cancer risk assessments in a private oncology practice.”
Now in its 37th year the Symposium’s mission is to provide state-of-the-art information on breast cancer research for a broad spectrum of researchers, health professionals, and those with a special interest in breast cancer. The Symposium is a collaborative initiative of the Cancer Therapy & Research Center (CTRC) at UT Health Science Center San Antonio and the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) along with Baylor College of Medicine.
“To have our poster and abstracts selected for presentation at the Symposium is an honor,” says Dr. Diab. “Research is an integral part of our mission here at Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers and we are excited for the opportunity to share our findings with such an influential audience.”
A community seminar is being planned for February where breast cancer specialists from across the Rocky Mountain Cancer Center network will be highlighting the latest research findings from the Symposium.
