Breast cancer is a complex disease with risk influenced by multiple genetic, environmental, hormonal, and behavioral factors. More effective approaches to prevent breast cancer will therefore require multiple scientific disciplines. Furthermore, any breast cancer research effort will be strengthened through active engagement with community partners. This annual BCERP conference incorporates the complementary perspectives of basic science, population science and community engagement. Research work has focused on specific windows of susceptibility in a woman’s life when environmental exposures may have greater impact on breast cancer risk.
Please join us for the BCERP Annual Meeting – Understanding the Link between the Environment and Breast Cancer. Take this opportunity to engage researchers, advocates, and community members in discussion on environmental exposures and breast cancer at the BCERP public conference and community forum.
The meeting is open the public, community advocates, and researchers at no cost.
The meeting will be an all-day event on Thursday, November 8 and continue for a half-day on Friday, November 9. The meeting will feature celebrated speakers, informative sessions on environmental exposures and breast cancer, a training workshop, a research poster session, and a community forum on the evening of November 8.
This meeting is hosted by Georgetown University.
