Each year the Cincinnati Breast Cancer and the Environment Research Program (BCERP) hosts a public education forum about environmental links to breast cancer. In addition to the keynote address, the forum offers attendees updates on the research conducted by Cincinnati BCERP scientists.
The eighth annual "Looking Upstream for Environmental Links to Breast Cancer” public education forum was held March 17, 2012. The event was attended by 102 community advocates, health care providers and community members interested in the research conducted through the Breast Cancer and the Environment Research Program (BCERP).
BCERP researchers, Dr. Frank Biro and Dr. Susan Pinney, updated the community on the project’s work over the past year. Keynote speaker Julia Brody, PhD., Executive Director of the Silent Spring Institute, talked about everyday exposures to hormone disrupters that influence breast cancer susceptibility and Lauren Niemes, Executive Director of the Greater Cincinnati Nutrition Council, enthusiastically discussed the healthy properties of power foods such as salmon, kale, and nuts.
