Community Outreach and Educational Materials

Investigators in the BCERP studies are collaborating with breast cancer advocate(s)s and/or members of the engaged community to build and promote partnerships among researchers, community members, and other stakeholders; ensuring bi-directional communication between researchers and the engaged community regarding environmental exposures of high and relevant importance; assisting with participant retention in epidemiologic studies; and developing and implementing tools and materials to communicate study findings to the public and policy makers.
