2nd World Congress on Controversies in Breast Cancer (CoBrCa) 2016 Barcelona

  • Conference Call
  • Fol­low­ing the suc­cess of CoBRA 2015, Con­gressMed is pleased to announce that the 2nd World Con­gress on Con­tro­ver­sies in Breast Can­cer (CoBrCa) will be held in Barcelona, Spain on Sep­tem­ber 811, 2016 at the Hilton Barcelona.

    CoBrCa will con­tinue the tra­di­tion of directly address­ing the key issues fac­ing clin­i­cians in their daily prac­tice. More top­ics will be addressed. In addi­tion to the key issues in med­ical oncol­ogy, surgery, radi­a­tion oncol­ogy and sup­port­ive care, CoBrCa will address con­tro­ver­sial issues in radi­ol­ogy, pathol­ogy and recon­struc­tion, with pre­sen­ta­tions, debates and dis­cus­sions. The con­gress will again pro­vide a forum to effec­tively debate unre­solved clin­i­cal and ther­a­peu­tic dilemmas.
