We’re reporting back from the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) on behalf of those living with and at risk of breast cancer.

As patient-centered advocates, we turn a critical eye toward the latest research and pharmaceutical developments when at SABCS, the world’s largest breast cancer conference.

The symposium ran from December 5th to December 9th of 2023 and took place both in-person in San Antonio, Texas, and in virtual format. BCAction team members who covered sessions throughout the 5-day conference were myself, BCAction’s Program Manager, Program Officer Zoë Christopher, and Executive Director KR, and we each brought our own lived experiences and analytical lenses to the topics we reported on. 

Check out our #SABCS23 posts now, available on the following topics:

We also posted rapid-response takes on Instagram, where you can see our live feedback and developing thoughts on the research and developments as they were presented live.

Watchdogging Big Pharma and translating the latest science back to our community are two of our core priorities: and we do this work so that we as breast cancer activists can insist on patient- and people-centered practices, policies, science, and treatments. Thank you for joining us in this vision and this work.
