Emily Bamforth

Program Assistant

Emily works with the programs team to produce LBBC’s educational programming, including the Breast Cancer 360s, Twitter Chats, Webinars, and annual conferences.  She also handles the administrative side of the Cis B. Golder Quality of Life Grant.

Emily was born in the UK and grew up in Davis, California, moving to the East coast to attend Bryn Mawr College.  She graduated in 2016 with a degree in anthropology and a minor in health studies.  Prior to joining LBBC, Emily was a Franklin Fellow through Haverford College; she worked with Project HOME and the Pennsylvania Health Access Network to collect the stories of individuals who had utilized, or who would benefit from, supportive housing services.

Outside of the office, you can find Emily running along the Schuylkill, baking, exploring Philadelphia and spending time with friends and family.


What Inspires My Work at LBBC

I joined LBBC because I felt strongly about its mission to connect people to trusted information and a community of support.  I strive to help produce quality programming that supports people in navigating their diagnosis and that highlights the voices of those affected by breast cancer.  Ultimately, I am always eager to hear from the people we serve and to talk to those who attend our programs.  Whether in-person at an event or answering questions over the phone, interacting with the people we serve and learning what we can better do to serve them is what inspires me in this work every day.
