Ketchum, Idaho, October 15, 2009 – CancerConsultants.com and Women Magazine have partnered to produce compelling and educational video coverage of The San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) for the ongoing educational video series, Understanding Cancer. The SABCS videos will be podcast and syndicated to cancer centers and clinics nationally as well as cancerconsultants.com

The compelling video coverage brings the conference home where it is most needed – to patients. Now, patients will have access to the most recent developments in breast cancer treatment.

The SABCS video coverage will include:

  • History of the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium
  • Highlights of the 2009 Conference
  • KOL Interviews
  • Breast Cancer Clinical Trials
  • Survivor Interviews
  • Clinical Trials Awareness Programs
  • Profiles of Young Women with Breast Cancer

“The San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium highlights the most current and innovative research in breast cancer,” said Charles Weaver, M.D., founder and CEO. “We are thrilled to be able to offer cancer patients inside access to this important conference.”

Patients will be able to peruse the extensive video coverage from the comfort of their own home – it will be almost as good as being there.
