This type of membership was created to inform NCBC members of the various private sector products and services available to them to improve patient care. The membership benefits were designed to provide a marketing mechanism for private sector business members to inform breast center members around the country about products and services. We trust that making information about products and services available to the membership will increase the opportunities to improve the care provided patients and will enhance the medical and administrative environment under which patient care is provided.
