Best of SABCS® - South

Regional Director
Kevin Kalinsky, MD and Jane Meisel, MD
Program Goals & Content Overview
As new clinical data continues to emerge as a result of ongoing research in breast cancer diagnostics and therapeutics, official Best of SABCS® programs cover these important developments in each of the live, regional events. Each regional event provides an educational forum for local researchers and clinicians to discuss the most pertinent basic, translational, and clinical breast cancer research presented at the annual SABCS® meeting.
Topics and discussions for each Best of SABCS® program are drawn from key presentations at SABCS® 2023, focusing on results of breast cancer research that helps clinicians understand current trends and forthcoming treatments that will optimize patient care outcomes. Significantly important content from SABCS® includes new drug therapy approvals and clinical trial results, updates in breast cancer screening and diagnostics, and best practices to be implemented in clinical care of patients.
The goals of the Best of SABCS® programs are to review and critically assess practice-changing results of emerging breast cancer research, propose best practices for implementing diagnostic and therapeutic strategies, and close knowledge and clinical practice gaps in the management of patients with breast cancer.
