The inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) program understands that a patient's journey with cancer goes beyond their clinical experience. Our program aims to provide comprehensive support services, resources, and educational opportunities.
Annual Patient Forum: The IBC Patient Forum is an educational program held every year for patients and families. Led by experts in IBC clinical care and research, the forum offers updates on IBC treatment and a variety of supportive care resources.
