  • A summary of where the report got it right and where it missed the mark
  • A focus on the limits of individual behavior and the policy changes required to reduce these exposures to toxins that may be contributing to the skyrocketing rates of breast and other cancers
  • Review the committee’s recommendations and discuss how advocates can move these recommendations forward

Join us on Tuesday, January 24th or Wednesday, January 25th for this free one-hour webinar to understand the role that advocates can play in turning the tide on the breast cancer epidemic.

    I have criticized many organizations for the same reason – you need to be aware of the sign up set up. There is NO space for nonprofits or ADVOCATES. We have to use OTHER. All of us MUST suggest to the webinar companies that they add those categories so that we are specifically included. I know that you know this, but no one noticed apparently.

    Alas, I have commitments for both days when you are doing the webinar – UGH! Will you be posting the webinar to the BCAction website? Is there any chance of getting a hard copy of the report from IOM? Thanks in advance for your reply.
