Medical Advisory Board
The mission of Living Beyond Breast Cancer’s Medical Advisory Board is to serve as an expert resource on issues of concern to women affected by breast cancer and their families (including women at high risk for developing breast cancer and caregivers) and to assist with outreach to other health professionals and consumers about the breadth of LBBC programs for women and families affected by breast cancer.
Many Medical Advisory Board members help with reviewing content for our website and publications, serve as speakers at our events and help answer your questions about breast cancer during our ask-the-expert series.
