BCA Announces Its National Advisory Council

BCA is proud to announce its newly formed National Advisory Council (NAC), made up of people from across the country who work in breast cancer, women’s health, and health policy. The NAC will help advance and advise on BCA’s work as we join forces to address women’s health needs. The council will also expand BCA’s reach in carrying the voices of people affected by breast cancer to inspire and compel the changes necessary to end the epidemic, and will draw on diverse points of view from different communities throughout the country.

Below is an initial list of people who will comprise BCA’s National Advisory Council. As BCA expands its reach, the council will continue to grow. (Organization affiliations are noted for identification purposes only.)
