In the last several years I have been engaged in public sociology to spur open and constructive dialogue about what is working and what is not working in the increasingly commercialized and superficial world of breast cancer. During this time and throughout my academic career I have worked with a network of individuals from diverse backgrounds and affiliations who are committed to revamping a system that no longer serves the interests of the diagnosed, those at risk for breast cancer, or those who have been diligently working toward social change.
I am pleased to announce that this month, a dynamic group of professionals who are already working to reveal the current state of dysfunction in pink ribbon culture and encourage collaborative, evidence-based solutions have joined me in a new network called the Breast Cancer Consortium.
We are working across disciplines, constituencies, and nations to change the breast cancer paradigm.
Check out the Breast Cancer Consortium website for more information.
Here too is the first BCC e-Quarterly.
