We would also like to acknowledge these important members of our team: the Witness Project of Harlem members (Glorie R. Browne, Elizabeth A. Carde BSN RN, Judith Crockett, Sherline James, Yulinda Lewis-Kelly, Lynn Little, Reather McAllister, Sharon McLeod, Elsa Iris Mendez, Alice Miller, Lee Molyneaux, and Desiree Walker) who stepped forward to participate in this project, to learn and then teach their communities about breast cancer and the environment. They are extraordinary women. The Advocates Mentoring Advocates Training program was shaped and polished by the questions they asked and the presentations they created and delivered.
