If you couldn't make it to one of these events then at least we can catch you up a little bit! Please don't hesitate to contact us directly here if you have questions.
The month started with ZBC returning as exhibitors and participants at the 17th Annual Cancer Prevention Institute of California's (CPIC ) Breast Cancer Conference at the Golden Gate Club in the San Francisco Presidio. In the next segment below, ZBC Education Coordinator Lianna Hartmour, shares her highlights from the conference.
Last weekend was the 11th Annual Marin Teen Girl Conference created by the Marin Women's Commission. As the Marin IJ reported the energy was truly contagious. This is a teen powered event and we were so encouraged by the programming designed by the teens for teens. Our message that breast cancer risk reduction includes lifestyle and environmental factors was strongly consistent with, and reinforced by, breakout sessions on physical activity, healthy eating, body positive and sessions to raise self-awareness on the use and abuse of smoking, drugs and alcohol.
Its quite fascinating how the star of each of these events turned out to be the low tech, high fun ZBC 'Wheel of Knowledge". You can see the girls lining up to take their turn in the middle image on the right hand side of the picture above.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all you readers who observe the Jewish Festival of Passover 'Chag Pesach Sameach' (a happy festival) and also send a message of joy and blessings to those of you for whom Easter is meaningful.
It was wonderful to have all the rain here in Northern California during March but I hope you agree with me that its time to enjoy the spring flowers and the sunshine!
Yours in health,
