2023 Geisinger Annual Breast Conference

Program Description 
 
This is a hybrid Educational Activity. 
 
As the management of breast patients, both benign and malignant, is evolving providers are given the opportunity to have access to current information.  We will hear about standards and guidelines as well as current and new treatments. It gives providers who care for breast patients the opportunity to network with other breast care providers from other specialties and facilities.

This activity is designed for system providers involved with breast care including physicians, nurses, advanced practitioners and psychologists.  Other learner groups such as residents and fellows would also benefit from this education.
