The San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) is an important annual breast cancer conference. Last year, SABCS offered more than 1,700 breast cancer-related presentations. Researchers and doctors often first share research news about ongoing or recently completed clinical trials during SABCS. This year, SABCS is going virtual and will be held December 8-11, 2020.
Virtual conferences offer greater flexibility and opportunity for people to attend–this year, SABCS is free for patient advocates. Being virtual also means there are no hotel or transportation costs associated with attending. Yet, online conferences also pose unique challenges.
