List of Breast Cancer related events, public talks and conferences in Singapore.
Following the success of the last two years’, we are happy to announce that we will be hosting the 3rd Asia-Pacific Breast Cancer Summit at the Shangri-La Hotel in sunny Singapore! Once again, we are bringing together international & regional faculty experts in breast cancer. The focus of next year’s meeting is to discuss the most up to date evidence available on treatment options for breast cancer and how to apply this tomorrow for your patients!
It will be a two day event covering surgical, radiation and medical oncology related topics on early and advanced breast cancer management including a special focus on hereditary breast cancer. A window into the molecular underpinnings of breast cancer is another highlight of next year’s summit. Back by popular demand, we will have numerous debates, panel discussions and tumour board sessions, in addition to our usual plenary lectures.
We are thrilled to offer this summit again in 2014 and look forward to seeing many familiar faces aside many new faces!

Run For Hope was inaugurated in 1993 by Four Seasons Hotel Singapore and Regent Singapore, making it the single largest fund-raising effort in aid of cancer research here. Since 2008, they have been partnering the National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS) to raise funds for the NCC Research Fund, providing for an array of basic, translation and clinical research programmes.
This year marks the Four Seasons Hotel Group’s 20years of running in support of cancer research in Singapore! To celebrate two decades of dedication towards such worthy cause, we are doing it differently with a new route in Central Singapore! The event however maintains its tradition as a non-competitive leisure run. So everyone; anyone; young & old, can join in the worthy cause & fun.
Run for a cause. Do your bit for charity and run for a reason!
The four charities that are closely associated with women and health have been selected to be supporting charities of the Great Eastern Women’s Run. They are the Breast Cancer Foundation, Singapore Cancer Society (Cervical Cancer Prevention Fund), Singapore Heart Foundation and Singapore Council of Women’s Organisations.
