Susan M. Cohen Education and Advocacy Day

An energetic and enthusiastic group gathered in Albany on March 12, 2013 for the fifteenth annual Image. The morning program began with Laura Weinberg’s presentation of a riveting new power point entitled Hydrofracking and Breast Cancer, which, for the first time, gives a detailed exploration of the ways that hydrofracking may affect breast cancer incidence and risk. This ground-breaking presentation was co-authored by Laura (Great Neck Breast Cancer Coalition), Karen Miller (Huntington Breast Cancer Action Coalition), and Margaret Roberts (CRAAB!).   An in-depth question and answer session followed the presentation. This was followed by a training in the Network’s 2013 public policy agenda which calls for a true, scientific-standard health impact assessment of hydrofracking and a robust outreach effort from the Department of Health and legislators to enroll uninsured New Yorkers in the NYS Insurance Exchange by its launch date January 1, 2014.
