WECF - Conference: Breast cancer, women’s reproductive health and EDCs

On 14 October, Women in Europe for a Common Future (WECF) France are co-hosting an international conference on breast cancer, women’s reproductive health and EDCs: from knowledge to prevention in Lyon, France.

This is a unique opportunity to find out more on cancer prevention and share information, expertise and science with high-level scientists, professionals dedicated to cancer research and prevention of the Lyon area, health professionals, policy-makers, breast cancer groups and other stakeholders, with the common objective of making primary prevention a reality.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women both in the developed and less developed world: in France and Europe, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lives. A growing body of evidence makes it urgent to devote a consistent part of public health policies to the primary prevention of exposures.
