Breast Cancer Working Group

CHE’s Breast Cancer Working Group was formed in 2005 as a subdivision of the CHE Cancer Working Group. This active but smaller group explores the relationship between environmental exposures and breast cancer, and developed the 2006 Consensus Statement on Breast Cancer and the Environment. This consensus statements compliments CHE's Consensus Statement on Cancer and the Environment.

We meet on occasion via conference call with additional emails between calls. The group has a listserv where new research and policy ideas are distributed. This working group is coordinated by both Michael Lerner, President of Commonweal, and Jeanne Rizzo, RN, Executive Director of Breast Cancer Fund. For more information about this group, contact Jeanne Rizzo at Jeanne@BreastCancerFund.org.

If you are interested in joining this group, please sign on as a CHE Partner, and indicate your interest in your application. If you are already a CHE Partner and would like to join the listserv for this group send an email request to: chebrcancer-subscribe@lists.healthandenvironment.org.
