Last week, Dr. Macadam was invited to attend the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s (CBCF) event “Beyond The Lab”, to present some of her recent CBCF-funded research. This exciting and impactful event hosted 5 influential researchers from within the breast cancer community, including Dr. Sheina Macadam, who, rather than giving a formal presentation, had the opportunity to engage in friendly, informative one-on-one conversations with attendees. The guests primarily included donors and VIPs, who were invited to mingle and speak with each of the 5 featured researchers to discuss their research and opportunities to fund future breast cancer research.
As an active and influential researcher, Dr. Macadam was invited to discuss her recent study, entitled "Quality of Life and patient-reported outcomes in breast cancer survivors: A multi-center comparison of four abdominally-based autologous reconstruction methods”, for which she was awarded a grant from the CBCF. Dr. Macadam comprehensively explained her research to the donors and other event attendees, and she was able to advocate for further research funding in the field of breast cancer, with the aim of enhancing patient care and reducing the incidence of breast cancer.
The event, which has more than doubled in size and scope since it was first launched, was an engaging and memorable experience that Dr. Macadam was thrilled to take part in. She looks forward to further collaboration with the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and future opportunities to speak about her research.
