The 15th Annual Breast Cancer Symposium

The 2020 Breast Cancer Symposium is going virtual! Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we will be offering our annual in-person conference in a virtual format this year. We are offering three separate sessions on different Saturdays throughout October. All sessions will run from noon-1pm. Individuals can register to participate in the live Zoom meetings, watch live via Facebook, or view the recorded sessions on our Facebook and/or YouTube pages. Individuals can register for one or all of the sessions, but you must register for each session individually.

Saturday, October 17 – Getting Vitamins and Supplements through Diet and Nutrition
Join Dr. Erin Roesch, MD, and Dr. YuFang Lin, MD, both from The Cleveland Clinic, for a robust discussion on getting the vitamins and supplements you need by maintaining a healthy diet. Participants will hear why oncologists don’t often recommend specific pill vitamins/supplements, but rather recommend a healthy diet to meet those needs during treatment. Participants will then get information on all of the recommended foods that will support them through breast cancer treatment and beyond, including recipes!
