While we were heartbroken to cancel the 2020 YSC Summit, the health and safety of the YSC community is paramount. Besides seeing old friends and making new ones, one of our favorite things about the Summit is the opportunity to connect with great organizations that provide resources, products and connections for our community. We thought since we’re all connecting virtually nowadays, there’s no reason we couldn’t virtually introduce you to some of the awesome exhibitors you would have seen in Los Angeles this past March.
We look for exhibitors in the Summit Hall that offer products and services our community wants. We want you to love the things you are shopping for while knowing that these companies support YSC’s mission. These exhibitors know that breast cancer is a year-round disease and while they were sad they couldn’t meet you in person at the YSC Summit, they would love to connect with you now.
