More than 200,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year in the United States. As the second leading cause of cancer deaths among women, this disease takes 40,000 lives annually.
In collaboration with members of the CEHS Environmental Cancer Research Focus Area and the Stakeholder Advisory Board, the CEC has developed tools to inform women about breast cancer risk and ways to reduce risk. See resources below.

Skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the United States, with more than two million people diagnosed each year.
With supplemental funding from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, the CEC staff partnered with investigators in the CEHS Environmental Cancer Research Focus Area and community partners to develop resources aimed at informing the public about risk factors for skin cancer and steps for reducing risk.
