The Global Breast Cancer Conference is a biennial meeting of breast cancer held in Seoul, Korea. Co-hosted by the Korean Breast Cancer Society, the Korean Oncology Nursing Society, the Korea Breast Cancer Foundation and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd GBCCs were held in 2007, 2009 and 2011 respectively.
Originally, the GBCC was intended for academics and practitioners involved in breast cancer. But the breast cancer conferences brought together people from all walks of life including medical personnel, medical science researchers, policymakers, patients, and guardians to search for multi-scietific strategies in every field related to creast cancer, including diagnosis, treatment research, and education, in order to get more knowledge on breast cancer and promote womens health.
Now the GBCC has been positioned as a multidisciplinary conference, not only for medical professionals.
Analystics said that Koreas state-of-the-art facilities and work in breast cancer treatment & researche and utmost efforts by the KBCS to encourage Korea to be a breast cancer treatment hub of Asia greatly contributed to making the 1st, 2nd and 3rd conferences a true success.
