Baylor College of Medicine issued the following announcement on July 11.

Research and patient care in the breast cancer area are constantly evolving, and progress is being made every day. To engage the community, particularly those interested in topics related to breast cancer research, treatment and patient care, Baylor College of Medicine has launched Breast Cancer Conversations, a quarterly educational event designed to inform the public about what’s new in breast cancer.

The first event, taking place on Thursday, July 19 at 6 pm, will be hosted by Dr. Matthew Ellis, renowned medical oncologist, McNair scholar and director of the Lester and Sue Breast Center, part of the Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center at Baylor College of Medicine. Ellis will speak about breakthrough breast cancer treatments, including alternatives to chemotherapy.

“There is a lot going on in the realm of breast cancer, from basic research to survivorship care. With this new series, we are hoping to pull out the most relevant updates for our community and break down complex research to educate this captive audience,” said Ellis. “We know breast cancer survivors, advocates, caregivers and patients are passionate about learning and getting involved, and we think this will be a great way to engage with this population in a more personal way.”
