Today, the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) Executive Committee announced that the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium will take place in 2020. However, in response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic, the Executive Committee has made the decision—out of necessity to ensure the health, safety, and security of all SABCS attendees and the patients and communities they serve—to hold the meeting virtually. The dates of the event will remain the same: December 8–12, 2020.
The Committee continued,
“While we look forward to holding SABCS as an in-person meeting in the future, having an interactive virtual SABCS will allow us to present and discuss the latest developments in breast cancer research and practice to an international audience. We have had over 1,300 abstracts submitted thus far. All components of the Symposium will be delivered as planned to include educational sessions, lectures, discussions, posters, and exhibits.
Registration fees have been reduced. If you have registered and paid, SABCS will refund any amount owed.
We will be sending detailed information about the virtual program soon. Please visit sabcs.org for details as they are posted.”The content in this post has not been reviewed by the American Society of Clinical Oncology, Inc. (ASCO®) and does not necessarily reflect the ideas and opinions of ASCO®.
