The American Society of Breast Disease (ASBD) is a non-profit professional medical society in the United States that serves all healthcare professionals and advocates involved in the fight against breast disease. Our mission is to advance the multidisciplinary team approach to breast healthcare through professional education, consensus development and training programs.
First discussed at the Annual Congress of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in 1976, the result was a new society committed to dealing with all aspects of breast disease and involving a widening group of healthcare professionals as the understanding of breast cancer deepened. This year the ASBD celebrates its 38th Anniversary, and the Society is privileged to have an active leadership and membership composed of expert clinicians in all disciplines of breast healthcare. The ASBD provides an opportunity for clinicians to stay current with new findings in prevention, screening, diagnosis, and treatment including exposure to numerous new pharmaceutical and technological advances.
Today, the ASBD includes healthcare professionals involved in every area of breast disease and cancer management in an overall effort to improve quality-of-life before, during and after treatment. The ASBD is very active in the global community of breast healthcare providers, and as a result we are proud to be co-host of the SIS 18th World Congress on Breast Healthcare.
The American Society of Breast Disease (ASBD) has enjoyed a rich history of providing national conferences, educational forums, newsletters, consensus statements and the like to their interdisciplinary professional audience.
Recognizing the similarities of missions and the need to find a partner in the face of a plethora of breast cancer meetings, ASBD made a pivotal decision to partner with the National Consortium of Breast Centers (NCBC) to share the clinical expertise of the ASBD Board and collective memberships.
This uniquely crafted joining of professionals from both organizations brings together the full range of practitioners and administrators who make possible the delivery of the best breast health care to our patients in the United States and abroad.Read More»
