Students & Scientists Research Program
The focus of the Students & Scientists Breast Cancer / Environment Research Program is to research environmental links to breast cancer and breast cancer prevention, while learning to work with sophisticated equipment in a state of the art laboratory.
Lend a Helping Hand
The Great Neck Breast Cancer Coalition offers a “Lend A Helping Hand” program for women and men who have been newly diagnosed with breast cancer in order to alleviate some of the stresses and demands associated with post breast cancer surgery and subsequent treatment.
Lectures & Speaking Engagements
We offer lectures and speaking engagements on many breast health issues such as risk reduction, and how to avoid toxic environmental exposures.
” I’m a believer in the precautionary principle. It doesn’t say that you act when you have no information, but you act in the presence of concerning information even if you don’t have certainty. Science is rarely 100 percent certain. So if you follow the precautionary principle, you look at all the evidence and you say maybe we don’t know everything, but there’s enough to suggest that we might want to be cautious.”
Linda Birnbaum, Director of NIEHS, in an interview with Consumer’s Union
