2016 Breast Cancer Forum Topic:

Navigating Work and Cancer


246,000 cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed in the United States this year. Many of these individuals face the issue of working during and after treatment, and returning to work after taking an extended leave from the workplace. The forum will be a venue to listen to national and local experts in healthcare, cancer survivorship, and the business world on how to navigate a cancer diagnosis and employment from a survivor's and business/human resource perspective.
