Support and Education

  • The inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) program acknowledges that a patient's journey with cancer goes beyond their clinical experience. Our program aims to provide comprehensive support services, resources, and educational opportunities.

    Educational Programs

    • Annual Patient Forum: The IBC Patient Forum is an educational program held every spring 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. View presentations and the Q&A panel from our 2nd Annual IBC Forum here.
    • Patient Education Support Groups: Held at various points throughout the year, our support groups offer an opportunity to hear up-to-date information on IBC treatment and research from IBC specialists, meet other patients living with IBC, and share in an open dialogue among participants and providers. For more information, please call 617-632-2311.
