DEDICATED TO EMPOWERING PATIENTS TO BE SELF-ADVOCATES FOR THEIR BREAST HEALTH AND TREATMENT.
The American Society of Breast Surgeons Foundation (ASBrS Foundation) is a 501(c)3 charitable organization founded in 2005 to improve the standard of care for breast disease. Since that time the Foundation has continued to evolve and focus on advancing breast care to all populations and enhancing the patient experience.
The American Society of Breast Surgeons Foundation envisions the day when all populations are actively participating in their own breast care. To make that vision a reality, the Foundation is working to empower patients to be self-advocates for their breast care and treatment, and enhance their experience with healthcare providers.
We’re advancing breast care and enhancing the patient experience by:
Providing information and education to increase public awareness of breast health
Facilitating the sharing of insights by multidisciplinary healthcare providers about patient perceptions and preferences
Supporting treatment research and access to breast care for all populations
Promoting The American Society of Breast Surgeons as the platform for thought leadership in breast surgery and breast care.
The American Society of Breast Surgeons Foundation supports the mission of The American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBrS), the primary leadership organization for general surgeons who treat patients with breast disease. ASBrS is committed to continually improving the practice of breast surgery by serving as an advocate for surgeons who seek excellence in the care of breast patients. This mission is accomplished by providing a forum for the exchange of ideas and by promoting education, research, and the development of advanced surgical techniques.
