Komen for the Cure Bringing World Scientists, Advocates to Global Breast Screening Think Tank and First Susan G. Komen Israel Race for the Cure® in Jerusalem

Building on its long-standing mission to end breast cancer on a global scale, Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, the world’s largest breast cancer organization, is partnering with the City of Jerusalem, Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, health advocates and scientists for a week of events in Israel to examine major scientific issues in breast cancer while advancing the international breast cancer movement. The leading breast cancer organizations of Europe and Canada as well as long-term Komen for the Cure partners will join in generating participation for this historic trip.

The week of events October 25-29 launches the Israel Breast Cancer Collaborative, a partnership between Komen and non-governmental organizations in Israel to enhance advocacy, awareness, screening and treatment of breast cancer in that country. Komen and its partners announced the Think Tank, Race for the Cure, delegation trip and Collaborative today.

Building on the momentum of the global breast cancer movement
This mission trip is similar to those Komen has sponsored in recent years to the Middle East, Western Europe and Africa to build on the momentum of the global breast cancer movement. During the week, Komen is calling together leading researchers and clinicians for a separate, invitation-only Think Tank designed to jump-start new thinking on breast cancer screening and risk assessment methodologies.

Delegates to the larger mission trip will investigate breast cancer issues and solutions in sessions with local officials and non-governmental organizations. The centerpiece of the delegation week is the first Susan G. Komen Israel Race for the Cure® around the walls of Old Jerusalem Oct. 28.
