  • Recruit women and men of every ethnicity with and without a breast cancer diagnosis and those of high risk.

  • Connect researchers with women and men who are willing to participate in breast cancer research studies.

  • Challenge the scientific community to expand its current focus to include breast cancer prevention research conducted on people.
