Best of SABCS will be held Saturday, January 27, 2024, at the Hollywood Beach Marriott in Hollywood, Florida.

The SABCS brings together approximately 10,000 clinicians and scientists from around the world devoted to the improved diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. “Our educational forum here in Florida helps disseminate the most current information on breast cancer research presented at the San Antonio meeting,” says Zeina Nahleh, MD, FACP, Cleveland Clinic in Florida’s Regional Institute Chair for Cancer, Director of the Maroone Cancer Center, and Co-Director of Best of SABCS.

Program highlights

Best of SABCS will cover a wide range of topics including: 

  • Hormone receptor-positive breast cancer
  • HER2-positive breast cancer
  • Triple-negative and BRCA-related breast cancer
  • Surgery, radiation and local management updates
  • Breast cancer prevention, quality of life and survivorship care
  • Addressing toxicities of novel therapy
  • Biomarkers and molecular profiling in breast cancer
  • Late-breaking abstracts and research in the pipeline

Beyond metastatic disease

While advanced stage and metastatic disease have long been a focus of the breast cancer research community, Dr. Nahleh points to the growing emphasis on decreasing recurrence in patients with early stage breast cancer and improving chances for a cure.

“I make it a point to attend SABCS every year, and it’s been incredible to see the development of novel bio therapies and neoadjuvant treatments and the gains being made in patient outcomes,” says Dr. Nahleh.

She is also excited about the growing interest in research on quality-of-life issues impacting patients. Dr. Nahleh is principal investigator of a Cleveland Clinic study looking at the use of art and music therapy to optimize a patient’s psychosocial adjustment and quality of life during active treatment for breast cancer. Results of the randomized controlled trial were shared in a poster presentation at the 2023 meeting in San Antonio.
