More than 7,000 physicians and researchers from around the world will converge on the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center Dec. 4-8 to attend the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS).
Founded, owned and operated by UT Health San Antonio, SABCS began in 1977 as a one-day regional conference. Over the past 41 years, the meeting has grown into a five-day international conference with representatives from more than 80 countries. Fifty percent of attendees are from countries outside the U.S.
“The SABCS is one of the largest breast cancer conferences in the world,” said Virginia Kaklamani, M.D., professor of medicine and leader of the UT Health San Antonio breast cancer program, who serves as one of three co-leaders of the SABCS.
