For more than 20 years, breast cancer advocates Karen Miller and Laura Weinberg have worked with communities on Long Island, New York and surrounding areas. Together, they facilitate breast cancer education and prevention efforts among diverse groups of women, including those who are underserved. Miller and Weinberg collaborate as community partners with NIEHS-funded researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

Miller and Weinberg’s expertise and years of experience with community groups and in disseminating information on breast cancer prevention to women have been essential in translating Mount Sinai research into meaningful information for communities.

High School Summer Research
Summer Interns

Justin Baroukhian and Sammy Hijazi, two high school students from Long Island, New York spent a month this summer working in connection with Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry and Beyond Benign as research interns.

Justin and Sammy were selected and sponsored by the Great Neck Breast Cancer Coalition's Students & Scientists Breast Cancer/ Environment Research Internship Program. Their research focused on whether a polymer called VBT (vinylbenzyl thymine) would work as a dye stabilizer since PCB's found in dye stabilizers have been linked to cancer. The two interns applied the polymer to fabric, irradiated it using UV light and evaluated the density of the dye using digital images. Their experimentation focused on the concentration of dye, techniques for applying the coating and drying the fabric along with variability of UV light. After less than a month of working diligently in the lab, the two interns had found that their experiment provided solid evidence that VBT coated fabrics did appear to hold the dye better than the control fabric. Through this internship, Baroukhian and Hijazi had gained experience working in a lab and were able to learn important skills such as proper lab and safety procedures and how to utilize machines such as the scanning electron microscope and UV cross linker. For both Baroukhian and Hijazi, the experience at Beyond Benign and WBI was both unforgettable and immensely rewarding. Baroukhian said "The scientists were very welcoming and took time out of their days to give advice and tell stories about how they got to where they are now. We came with a high school chemist's knowledge and left with a knowledge that was far beyond that."

So what if New York State permits hydrofracking to extract the natural gas in the state's southern tier. So what if environmentalists are right, and the blighted landscape ruins its tourism industry, contaminates the farms and the crisscrossing of pipes makes the land useless for future development upstate? Why should Long Islanders care?

Summer 2006

GNBCC’s 2006 summer scholarship program
GNBCC’s 2006 summer scholarship program at Tufts University was a tremendous success.  This year’s recipients, Monika Lalezarzadeh, from North High School and Sofie Einbinder, from South High School, learned valuable laboratory procedures and about research pertaining to environmental links to breast cancer at Ana Soto’s Laboratory at Tufts University Medical School.

Their reviews say it best.  Monika said, “I think the work being done between the Great Neck Breast Cancer Coalition and the Tufts Medical Laboratory is fantastic, informative and very educational.  It has inspired me to continue with laboratory work and studies, and apply what I had learned.”  Sofie adds, “it was truly a rare gift to participate in behind the scenes research on breast cancer.”

The laboratory skills they learned including staining mammary gland tissues on slides and how to use a gel electrophoresis (to separate macromolecules) which can isolate genes.  In addition, Monika and Sofie were taught of the potentially, harmful effects of exposure to the chemical, Bisphenol A, which is used in certain baby bottles and dental sealants.  They also learned that fetal exposure to this chemical may cause future offspring to develop breast cancer as adults.

To view Monika’s and Sofie’s essays on their experience at Ana Soto’s Laboratory at Tufts, visit the GNBCC website at: www.greatneckbcc.org.

May 12, 2006 - News: Going, Going, Green
You might expect that only people who work in occupations that expose them to a myriad chemicals or people who live adjacent to Superfund sites would be found to have high levels of chemicals in their blood and urine. But research done by the Centers for Disease Control and the Environmental Working Group in Washington D.C. shows that measurable levels of 148 chemicals have been found in ordinary Americans of all ages, in all places. The measure of pollution in people is called "body burden." FULL STORY
