UC-administered breast cancer program wins award
The California Breast Cancer Research Program (CBCRP), administered by the UC Office of the President, will be honored by a leading national advocacy organization for its innovative research and community collaborations.
The National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS) will present its most prestigious annual honor, the Catherine Logan Award for Service to Survivorship, to the CBCRP on Thursday, Nov. 3, at its Rays of Hope Gala in Washington, D.C.
The CBCRP was established in 1993 by the California Legislature to adopt research strategies and allocate funds for studies in breast cancer biology, causes, prevention, treatment and survivorship. It is funded through a California tobacco tax, voluntary contributions on personal income tax forms and individual donations.
The NCCS, in honoring the CBCRP, will also recognize the state of California and its legislature for its foresight in creating a key program for the battle against breast cancer.
