Breast Cancer Educational Conference
The 12th Annual Living with Breast Cancer Educational Conference will be held from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on October 12 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. Founded by the Breast Cancer Awareness Association, this conference seeks to provide education and resources for providers, caregivers, survivors and anyone interested in learning more about breast cancer.

Highlights include an expert panel opening session, “Breast Health, Interventional Nutrition and New Technologies in Breast Cancer,” featuring Carolyn Torkelson, M.D., Gregory Plotnikoff, M.D., and Keith Knutson, Ph.D.
