Website: www.purdue.edu/breastcancer/
Where: French School of Public Health (EHESP), Rennes, France
Co-Chairs: Martine Bellanger, Sophie A. Lelièvre, and Connie M. Weaver

This multidisciplinary symposium on breast cancer prevention that focuses on epigenetics, nutrition and public policy is organized by the International Breast Cancer and Nutrition (IBCN) group initiated at Purdue University, USA (www.purdue.edu ) in partnership with the French School of Public Health (EHESP) in Rennes, France. This initiative recognizes that different countries have unique perspectives which would benefit a sustained international effort to prevent breast cancer, and that the education of trainees in cross-disciplinary and international collaboration is an essential component in addressing global public health-related issues. The goal of this symposium is to bring together global public health actors and advocates, and researchers on breast cancer prevention and nutrition to provide a platform for discussion among scientists, clinicians and other professionals in the biology, epidemiology, medicine, nutrition, communication, education and public policy fields.

Register now, as space is limited to the first 150.

Abstracts for poster and oral presentations related to breast cancer prevention regardless of the discipline studied, as well as abstracts related to any of the topics of the four sessions chosen this year, will be accepted until July 15, 2011. Confirmation of approved abstracts will be sent to the authors July 20, 2011. Abstract submission
