Top 5 reasons to attend this year’s Breast Cancer Innovation conference


The field of breast cancer care is evolving quickly. From novel breast imaging techniques to new surgical approaches to less toxic targeted individualized treatments instead of chemotherapy, it can be difficult — if not nearly impossible — for providers to keep up with every innovation intended to improve patient care.

Over the course of two days, Mayo Clinic’s 2022 Breast Cancer Care: Innovation, Disruptive Technologies and Early Adopters educational conference will bring you up to speed on the new therapeutics, technologies and techniques that could change the way you provide breast cancer care.

This year’s conference will be held Sept. 16-17 at Mayo Clinic’s Rochester, Minnesota, campus. Attendance can be in-person or virtual.

Here are the top 5 reasons why you should attend.  

  1. Presentations by experts who will share their clinical experience with new breast cancer technologies.
