JW Marriott
Room 201-202
110 E 2nd St


Breast Cancer is the second largest cause of cancer death among women in the U.S., invading the lives of millions of women and their caregivers. How can the breast cancer community – from consumers and physicians to researchers, health plans and tech companies – create change? What do we need to do to help find a cure? In this session, breast cancer survivor, advocate and blogger Ann Silberman, along with digital health media expert David Kopp will lead an interactive discussion exploring what needs to change in breast cancer care and treatment today, the emerging role digital innovation will play in helping find a cure, and how we can all help.
