To Our BCT Community:

We are very excited to bring you this first issue of talking About Trials, our new BCT newsletter. Brought to you every other month, “talking about trials” is precisely what we plan to do as we cover interesting topics that explore clinical research from many different perspectives. It seems only fitting that our inaugural issue would examine the events leading up to the first clinical trial that definitively changed breast cancer care, showing that simple mastectomy (and ultimately lumpectomy) was as effective as radical mastectomy. This blog will capture all of our newsletter articles in their entirety.

You will hear from many voices in talking About Trials. Each issue will highlight a personal reflection from a trial participant, researcher or healthcare provider. In this issue, Elly Cohen, Program Director of BCT, talks about her experience in a supportive care trial after completing chemotherapy. We would love to hear your personal story. Send it to us at help-desk@bctrials.org.

Lastly, you may be wondering why talking about Trials has such a different “look and feel” from our website. That’s because BreastCancerTrials.org is about to get a facelift with a new design and expanded educational information about clinical trials. Consider this a sneak preview!

Sincerely, The BCT Team

    BCT’s New Newsletter Blog is great! I am looking forward to passing it along to many of my friends…and now I will also start following BCT on Twitter, too! Thanks for making it easy—and most of all thank you, Elly and all your team for the work that you do.
