About the President's Cancer Panel

Starting in September 2008, the President's Cancer Panel has held four public meetings. The Panel's focus for 2008/09 was "Cancer and the Environment". These meetings offered a unique opportunity for interested CHE Partners to tell the panel and the American people what we have learned about the environmental causes of cancer. Each meeting explored a different set of environmental contributors to cancer causation

The agenda for each meeting included official testimony by invited experts and 15-20 minutes of open public comment. The list of invited experts for the panel meetings included many CHE partners and friends, including Jeanne Rizzo, Dr. Dick Clapp, Dr. Devra Davis, Dr. Phil Landrigan, Dr. Sandra Steingraber, Dr. Tyrone Hayes, and others.

Consensus Statement on Cancer and the Environment

The Collaborative on Health and the Environment, in partnership with the Lowell Center for Sustainable Production and the Breast Cancer Fund, has developed a consensus statement that lays out the scientific rationale for stronger cancer prevention and enumerates specific research and policy initiatives to prevent environmental exposures that contribute to cancer.

We invite you to voice your support for a stronger, science-based national cancer prevention agenda by signing the statement. As of 1/30/09, about 220 people and organizations have signed the statement.
