Event overview

This year is our 5th anniversary (can you believe it?!) so we couldn't think of a more fitting theme than 'Look how far we have come'.

Back in 2019, four strangers with a common passion organised the very first conference at King's College Hospital campus. Now one pandemic, and five years later, I am so pleased to be able to celebrate some of the successes.

Over the five years we have had many staunch and ardent supporters and we hope to show case some of their achievements and the impact they have made in this space.

The concept of mixing health care professionals, charities and the public in a multi-way learning environment is unique to us and part of what makes this conference such a rich productive learning space, fostering so many collaborations. In order to encourage even more participation, I'm excited to announce that we'll also be hosting 2023 'watch parties' around the UK and the rest of the world.

However, this year's conference is also tinged with sadness too, as some of those that have participated in previous editions are no longer with us. We honour their memories and their tireless work to raise awareness of breast cancer in the Black community, and thank them for all the lives they have undoubtedly saved by using themselves as examples.

This year's event is set to be another incredible day, and we look forward to you joining us for our popular 'myth busting' sessions, interactive talks from experts, on the day bra fittings and educational/hands on workshops.
