Event description

Description

The Breast Cancer Education Conference is a very special day dedicated to learning, sharing, and communicating with others in our community whose lives have been impacted by breast cancer. This conference gives everyone the knowledge that is so very necessary to deal with this disease and that it also empowers us with the strength needed to go through this journey.

The keynote speaker for this year's conference is Keith L. Knutson, Ph.D. of the Mayo Clinic.

Dr. Knutson is the principal investigator of a $13.3 million, five-year Breakthrough Award grant from the Department of Defense to test a vaccine designed to prevent the recurrence of triple-negative breast cancer, a subset of breast cancer for which there are no targeted therapies.

Dr. Knutson's research is aimed at preventing patients with cancer from relapsing after receiving optimal conventional therapies. His research interests focus on the immunology and immunotherapy of breast and ovarian cancers. In addition to his research, Dr. Knutson participates in and chairs several study sections, is co-director of the Mayo Clinic Immune Monitoring Core and director of the Mayo Clinic Ovarian Cancer Immunotherapy Program.

Conference registration and Resource Center, your one-stop shop for the latest breast health products, services and resources from local breast health organizations, begins at 8:00 am.
