Introducing the 2019 Education Committee
The mission of the Breast Cancer Education Association (BCEA) is to educate the community by providing support and information about breast cancer detection, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship. The role of the Education Committee is to identify broad-ranging topics across the breast health continuum and to engage expert speakers in the field.
Our outreach and educational programs cross all boundaries and support a broad range of healing philosophies. At local community events, through FREE educational webinars, and at an inspiring annual conference that brings the community’s best medical and therapeutic breast health experts together for a full day of learning, BCEA volunteers are connecting those whose lives have been impacted by breast cancer with support resources and the latest information on research, treatment options, nutrition and care.
