The Breast Cancer and the Environment Research Program (BCERP) is conducting epidemiologic and biologic studies investigating the influence of Extended Environmental Exposures on breast cancer risk throughout the lifespan. Targeted for study are multiple “windows of susceptibility” that may represent periods of particular vulnerability to specific chemical, dietary, or psychosocial stresses. This year's program will be developed around the theme of new science, new activism, and new opportunites. As always, community participation and advocacy concerns will be integrated into all aspects of the program.
The audience for the meeting is expected to be BCERP members; scientists in the area of breast cancer and mammary biology, environmental epidemiology or children's health; and community, environmental health, and breast cancer advocates.
