The goal of the NCBC Abstract Program is to facilitate discussion between representatives of participating centers and to advance knowledge in the field that will be useful to your colleagues. Submitted abstracts fall into one of three categories: Category I: Breast Center Operations, Administration and Programs, Category II: Patient Care and Support, and Category III: Breast Cancer Diagnosis and Management.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
To participate, email your abstract (not the poster) and the application to the NCBC office at NCBCabstracts@breastcare.org by midnight PST, Monday, December 19, 2016. Faxed abstracts cannot be accepted, and while in past years abstracts submitted within a week after the deadline have often been accepted for presentation and consideration of awards, for the 2017 Conference late submissions will not be accepted.
Accepted posters will be invited to display their poster at the conference and discuss their results with conference guests during a Poster Reception on Sunday, March 12, 2017.
One abstract of particular interest from each of the three major categories and up to four abstracts submitted by trainees, the highest ranked of which will be designated the Fellow/Resident/Student Award recipient, will be selected for oral presentation at the Oral Abstracts Plenary session in the afternoon on Sunday, March 12, 2017. Category Award winners will receive a $100 monetary prize; the winner of the Fellow/Resident/Student Award will receive a $200 monetary prize and complimentary conference registration.
