Our health care system is under extraordinary pressure. The COVID-19 pandemic has created an uncertain financial future for surgeons—and this is before we even factor in the Medicare payments cuts that take effect in six months. The Society is committed to advocating for you during these challenging times. To that end, we are excited to announce The American Society of Breast Surgeons, along with 11 other surgical associations, publicly announced the launch of the Surgical Care Coalition: www.surgicalcare.org
Two awards from the May 23 Virtual Scientific Session were voted on by the ASBrS publications committee. Congratulations to our winners! The 2021 Call for Abstracts will open on August 3, 2020.
The COVID-19 Pandemic Breast Cancer Consortium has created a follow up document (pdf) to help guide the health care community through the recovery stage of the pandemic, recognizing that different hospitals and cancer centers would be in different phases of the pandemic and recovery.
The American Society of Breast Surgeons is committed to providing continuing education on the latest research, diagnosis, and treatment modalities to enhance your breast surgical practice. ASBrS president, Jill Dietz, MD, FACS, provides an update on the Society’s 2020 Scientific Session and NEW ongoing virtual education series.
