What happens when you put a champion of breast cancer research, an award-winning science journalist, a fearless advocate for underserved communities and a fiery breast cancer prevention leader in a room together?
A fascinating conversation and a breeding ground for real and lasting change.
On May 30 a group of trailblazers in the movement to prevent breast cancer gathered at UCSF Mission Bay for the Breast Cancer Fund's Pioneering Prevention event.
The panelists, including Jeanne Rizzo, Breast Cancer Fund President, Florence Williams, award-winning journalist and author of Breasts: A Natural and Unnatural History; Mhel Kavanaugh Lynch, M.D., M.P.H., director of the California Breast Cancer Research Program; and Ysabel Duron, founder of Latinas Contra Cancer talked about their inspiration in joining this movement, the implications of the recently released Interagency Breast Cancer and Environmental Research Coordinating Committee report and turning the report's conclusion into a national breast cancer prevention strategy.
