The Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Program presents a forum, which is free and open to the public, on the environmental impact on breast cancer on Monday, April 16, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Adelphi University’s Alumni House, located at 154 Cambridge Avenue, in Garden City.
Panelists will describe the latest research identifying environmental risk factors for breast cancer, with a specific focus on environmental chemicals. Those attending will learn how to identify toxic environmental exposures that have been linked with breast cancer and how to avoid them by using safer alternatives at home, work and school.
Speakers are Laura Vandenberg, Ph.D., assistant professor and Graduate Program Director of University of Massachusetts-Amherst School of Public Health & Health Sciences; Laura Weinberg, president of Great Neck Breast Cancer Coalition; and Karen Miller, president and co-founder of Huntington Breast Cancer Action Coalition.
