Nancy Burke to receive Zero Breast Cancer community award

DAHSM gladly announces that Zero Breast Cancer is bestowing the 2012 “Community Breast Cancer Research award” to Nancy Burke, Assistant Professor at DAHSM, for her contributions to our understanding of breast cancer and the healing process, and community health. Zero Breast Cancer is a community based non-profit organization based in Marin County dedicated to finding the causes of breast cancer through community participation in research, with a focus on identifying environmental factors that play a role in the development of breast cancer at all stages of life. In particular, Nancy Burke and Claudia Guerra, also from the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, have collaborated with Zero Breast Cancer to develop education programs for younger women and Latinas to raise awareness on breast cancer risk. The awards will be presented at the 13th Annual Honor Thy Healer celebration on Thursday, May 10, 2012, at the Mill Valley Community Center, 180 Camino Alto in Mill Valley, California.
