3rd Annual Town Hall Meeting: Translating Breast Cancer and Environmental Research Into Action

The Bay Area Breast Cancer and the Environment Research Center (BABCERC) held its 3rd Annual Town Hall Meeting at Preservation Park near Oakland's City Center on Saturday, March 1, 2008. The program covered a broad spectrum of information, beginning with the role of the internal, somatic environment at the cellular/molecular level, moving on to epidemiological studies in young girls, in communities and following this idea of environmental impact all the way to the presentation by keynote speaker, Mark Schapiro, who spoke about the significance of environmental regulations on the global economy.

This meeting reflected the goals of BABCERC - to generate useful knowledge and to communicate and disseminate that knowledge so that it can inform personal decision-making, eliminate health disparities and have an impact on public policy. One of the ways that BABCERC seeks to do this is by identifying and lessening the number of environmental toxins to which we are all exposed.
