Congratulations Breast Cancer Network

Last weekend the very first NZ National Breast Cancer Conference was held in Rotorua. Approximately 465 women (and a few men) spent 2.5 days absorbing the very latest info surrounding Breast Cancer, which included a range of topics about treatments, genetics, screening, clinical trials, and NZs contribution to World Wide Cancer Research.

This conference hosted by the Breast Cancer Network NZ was a forum for those who have experienced Breast Cancer to come together and gain a better understanding of this disease as a whole.

Key Note speakers included Dr Susan Love who is famous in the Breast Cancer community for her widely acclaimed 'Dr Susan Love's Breast Book' - now in its 4th edition. Dr Love's talk gave a conceptual overview of the changes in screening, prevention, diagnosis and treatment.

This was certainly a valuable conference to all who attended, and I highly recommend anyone who is affected by Breast Cancer to attend the second National Breast Cancer Conference (TBA).
