2011 Breast Symposium

CHICAGO, IL – October 18, 2011 – The First Annual Chicago Breast Symposium, held
Saturday, October 15 at North Chicago’s Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and
Science, brought to Lake County more than 400 physicians, nurses, surgical and
radiological technicians, social workers, hospital administrators and breast care
advocacy groups for a comprehensive continuing education event. The two-tiered, 7-
hour accredited agenda included the latest information on primary care, genetics and
risk reduction, diagnostics, breakthrough surgical and micro-surgical techniques, breast
conservation, multidisciplinary breast care strategies, advocacy and survivorship.

Co-sponsored by Chicago Plastic Surgery Research Foundation, Inc., University Plastic
Surgery, SC, and Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science, the Symposium
kicked off its morning schedule with a brief address by Congressman Robert J. Dold
(pictured above), who thanked the participants for their “heroic” role in a constant battle
against breast cancer and their tireless efforts to improve treatment options while
enhancing their focus on survivorship (a legal mandate for inclusion as part of breast
cancer care beginning in 2014).

“The field is constantly changing, with new and better methods of patient care being
introduced all the time,” said Loren S. Schechter, MD, FACS, Chief of the Division of
Plastic Surgery at Chicago Medical School, founding member of Chicago Plastic Surgery
Research Foundation and Loren S. Schechter, M.D. Plastic Surgery, SC, and co-creator of the Chicago
Breast Symposium. “By bringing so many different specialists together for a common
purpose, to share their knowledge of procedures and approaches in their infancy or on
the horizon, we are helping to educate a broad cross-section of the health care
community on the front lines of breast care and patient advocacy.”

Plans are already underway for the Second Annual Chicago Breast Symposium,
scheduled for October 12 and 13, 2012. For more information as it becomes available,
