Event description

Description

Don’t miss this exciting event at which the finalists from the Global Challenge to Prevent Breast Cancer present their bold ideas for breast cancer prevention research in a live competition. This competition is the culmination of a months-long challenge, sponsored by the California Breast Cancer Research Program (CBCRP), to surface ground-breaking prevention research ideas. Two Grand Prize winners (one advocate and one researcher) will be selected by a panel of respected experts and announced at the event. We will also present an Audience Choice Award to a finalist chosen by the audience – we need your vote! Attend in person or watch the event via livestream. The event will feature renowned surgeon, breast cancer prevention advocate, and author Dr. Susan Love as keynote speaker.

An optional light lunch will be served after the event. All attendees are invited to stay for lunch and have the opportunity to meet others interested in breast cancer prevention research.

Despite significant advances in breast cancer treatment, people continue to be diagnosed with breast cancer at astounding rates – rates that have remained essentially unchanged over the past three decades. Of the more than $2 billion spent each year on breast cancer research, less than 10 percent is dedicated to prevention. Through the challenge, CBCRP aims to help launch an entirely new direction in breast cancer research – focused on prevention – and CBCRP will invest $15 million over five years in grant funding to develop the best ideas from the challenge.
