Susan G. Komen MBC Impact Series

2020 Virtual Metastatic Breast Cancer Conference:
Education, Empowerment and Support

Sunday, November 15, 2020

The 2020 Komen New Jersey Virtual Metastatic Breast Cancer Conference will provide people living with metastatic disease and their families a safe, collaborative space to gather information and discover practical resources — needed to make decisions for improved physical and emotional health.

This year, we will gather virtually due to health and safety concerns, but our information and support will remain the same.

During the virtual conference, you will be able to participate in live sessions with leading medical experts and people living with metastatic breast cancer. You’ll also be able to chat with other attendees in one of our meet-up lounges and interact with exhibitors that have products and services just for you. Pre-recorded sessions will be available, and virtual attendees will have the opportunity to talk with speakers during “Meet the Expert” sessions.

RSVP and join us for FREE on November 15!
