The National Breast Cancer Coalition, NBCC, has announced that Project LEAD® Institute will return for two summer sessions in 2022, on July 24 – 29 and July 31 – Aug 5. Applications are now open. This is a six-day intensive science course designed for the lay public to train breast cancer advocates. The course provides a foundation of scientific knowledge upon which participants can strengthen and empower themselves as advocates. Taught by renowned research faculty, this is a unique opportunity for those interested in learning more about working as an NBCC research advocate. Many of the members of the BCCRF are Project LEAD® graduates (and a few mentors) and this learning has enriched our advocacy. You can apply for either session and learn more at the NBCC website.
