We envision a world with zero breast cancer.
Zero Breast Cancer promotes breast cancer risk reduction through translation of scientific research and evidence-based recommendations that support health and wellness at key stages of life.
What we know
Breast cancer risks are not clear cut or sudden; they are complex, they interact and they are embedded in our physical and our social environments. Therefore, risk reduction and prevention efforts must be multi-faceted, incremental and sustained.
What we do
At Zero Breast Cancer, we focus on modifiable risk factors--things that we can change--either individually or within our community. We recognize that social and economic conditions impact our ability to live in healthy places and pursue healthy behaviors. While many disparities are systemic, through education and empowerment we can increase our resilience and change our environments to improve the health of all.
We address issues such as:
- Physical activity
- Stress management and adequate sleep
- Nutrition and healthy eating habits
- Reduced exposure to radiation and chemicals that affect hormones or otherwise raise breast cancer risk
- No or limited alcohol consumption
- Breast feeding
- Health equity
How we do it
We share integrated, scientific evidence-based information in order to educate and empower girls, women and communities.
Who we serve
Women (and men) with a focus on youth, teens and breast cancer survivors in underserved communities.
