National Breast Cancer Coalition

Project LEAD® Workshop

The Project LEAD® workshop is a two-day training program for advocates interested in an introductory education in the science of breast cancer. This workshop, open to everyone interested in learning about breast cancer, will teach students how to be critical thinkers and how to better understand the breast cancer science in the media every day.

At the Project LEAD® workshop, students will study the biological and molecular concepts that explain how breast cancer works and the research methods and study designs that allow scientists to discover new information and test their ideas. Graduates will be better able to explain this information to their colleagues, friends, and family.

Taught by renowned scientific faculty, this is a unique opportunity. For those who are excited about learning even more and working in research advocacy, applying for the Project LEAD® Institute could be the next challenge. The next Project LEAD® Workshop will take place on November 14-16, 2014, in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area (specific location TBA). There is no registration fee for this workshop and limited lodging scholarships are available for NBCC members in financial need.
