9th INTERNATIONAL BREAST DENSITY & CANCER RISK ASSESSMENT WORKSHOP

WELCOME

SAVE THE DATE: We invite you to attend the 9th International Breast Density and Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Workshop in Waikiki, Honolulu, Hawaii, June 5-7, 2019.

Dear Friends and Colleagues, The Breast Density Workshop has been held in San Francisco since 2002. However, the next workshop will be hosted by the University of Hawaii Cancer Center where John Shepherd has relocated. Please join us for a great meeting.

We will schedule the meeting from 7am to 2 pm so that we can get a full day schedule and end early so you can have plenty of time for networking. We are also planning an opening reception on Wednesday night and luau dinner on Thursday night. The hotel is extending their special rate for several nights before and after the meeting in case you want to extend your stay in world-famous Waikiki.

Much more to follow but for now, please mark the date and plan on attending!

OVERVIEW

We invite you to attend the 9th International Breast Density and Cancer Risk Assessment Workshop. A high amount of dense breast tissue has been shown to be one of the strongest risk factors for breast cancer, although the specific reason(s) for this is not known.

Recent legislation in over 37 states, including Hawaii, requires reporting of breast density to women with dense breasts undergoing mammography. Ideally, prior to enacting legislation, there would be guidelines on how best to measure breast density, what risk model to use that includes breast density to report breast cancer risk, as well as a standardized form to communicate this information. Research is ongoing to understand how different technologies that measure breast density relate to both breast cancer detection and breast cancer risk.
