2020 Breast Cancer Survivorship Experience

by Ann Griffiths.

The Breast Cancer Survivorship Experience is a unique opportunity for breast & surgical oncology and plastic surgery fellows to spend the weekend learning about breast cancer survivorship from both physicians and patients.  You will have the opportunity to experience holistic/integrative modalities including meditation and yoga and participate in workshops to see firsthand the benefits of programs offered for healing. The weekend is filled with powerful and insightful presentations. 

March 20 – March 22, 2020

Beth DuPree, M.D., FACS, ABIHM and William Scarlett, D.O., FACS are the Co-Directors for the Experience.

Background and Overview

Education of breast surgeons may begin in the operating room, focusing on the “science” of treating breast cancer.  However, learning about how to guide patients from diagnosis through recovery is truly the “art” of breast care. The Society of Surgical Oncology (SSO) sanctioned breast fellowship courses to train young surgeons about the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, with their primary focus on the science. In addition to the treatment of the disease, the SSO now requires breast surgeons to learn about survivorship, prevention, and after cancer care.

Over the past nine years, Dr. William Scarlett and Dr. Beth DuPree have developed “The Breast Cancer Survivorship Experience”  course. During this course, they have taught fellows the “art” of breast care for the patients.  We are pleased to have Dr. William Scarlett and Dr. Beth DuPree as the co-facilitators again for the 2020 course.

The main objective of the course is to provide these young breast & surgical oncology  and plastic surgery fellows with the educational resources to complement their surgical specialty education. 

Registration is required and is open to current breast & surgery oncology and plastic surgery fellows. Space is limited.

There is no cost to the fellows to participate. Transportation and Accommodations will be provided for all participants. A check for $100 made out to the HCF is required to reserve your spot.  The check will be returned to you at the event.
