National Consortium of Breast Centers, Inc.
A nonprofit membership organization dedicated to excellence
in breast health care for the general public
Members include breast health professionals
who provide direct patient care and corporations and businesses that provide services or
products to breast health professionals and their organizations.
What started in 1985 as a small group of multidisciplinary breast health professionals has continued to grow into an ever-increasing group of medical professionals who assemble to exchange information, network and learn from each other. The focus continues to be on the development; implementation and expansion of breast center programs to allow these experts to become informed of the most up-to-date breast care techniques and options available to their patients. With the addition of private sector businesses and corporations as part of the membership, breast health professionals are also kept informed about advances in equipment, technology, drugs and services available to them to improve patient quality care. Through monthly newsletters, an annual conference and networking throughout the year, NCBC members are kept informed of the incessantly changing breast health care world.
