Our LESLIE’S WEEK 1st

Annual STAGE4CHANGE

Workshop is designed for the

Medical and Pharmaceutical

Commmunities, Hospital Breast

Cancer Centers and Oncologyrelated

physician practice

groups — including HCPs,

Physicians-in-training, Nurse

Navigators, Social Workers,

Scientific Researchers and

all others who would like to

improve their understanding

of patients living with

Metastatic Breast Cancer.

Our 2020 LESLIE’S WEEK STAGE4CHANGE workshop is

the 1st Annual Stage 4 Breast Cancer women’s

conversation with the Medical and Pharmaceutical

communities. This event is distinguished from

other breast cancer-centered conferences in that

our Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer women

are not participants, but the presenters;

you will have the unprecedented

opportunity to gain insight

into what it is to live with

Metastatic Breast Cancer.

Our specific focus is to have

MBC women express their views

and share their experiences on

topics such as patient support

programs, treatment side

effects, communication with

doctors and oncologists, the

use of integrative oncology,

and barriers to care. You

will hear what impacts their

quality of life. The goal of this

STAGE4CHANGE workshop is to

bring together in a conversational

setting a diverse audience of experts.
