  • Addressing Chemicals of Concern | Sports and Recreation, breast cancer
    Addressing Chemicals of Concern - The Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition’s Let’s Talk Prevention: Reducing Toxic Exposures educational outreach materials which empower discussions between health professionals and patients will be on exhibit at MetroWest Medical Center from March 1, 2015 through March 31, 2015.

    The state’s leading breast cancer prevention non-profit, Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) is pleased to announce the tour and exhibition of a new educational program, Let’s Talk Prevention: Reducing Toxic Exposures at MetroWest Medical Center, 115 Lincoln Street in Framingham, MA from March 1, 2015 through March 31, 2015.

    For more than a century, MetroWest Medical Center has been a staple in the community for the delivery of quality healthcare with a personal touch. MetroWest Medical Center is committed to providing high quality, comprehensive care, close to home – patients being the number one priority. Vision: MetroWest Medical Center will be the healthcare provider of choice for the region by placing the patient at the center of all decision making, offering exceptional service to patients, comprehensive and high quality clinical programs, a supportive work environment for employees, and an outstanding medical staff that represents a full range of specialties distinguished for clinical excellence. Mission: Advanced Medicine. Personalized Care. Right Here.

    This educational program is designed by the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition to facilitate discussions between health professionals and patients about environmental exposures and chemicals of concern. To help facilitate these discussions and make this important public health topic more palatable, the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition has created a one-of-a-kind booklet for health professionals and a medical brochure for patients.

    The Let’s Talk Prevention: Reducing Toxic Exposures booklet for health professionals summarizes scientific evidence linking exposure and effect for many common chemicals of concern and suggests how to begin environmental health conversations with patients. The accompanying Let’s Talk Prevention: Reducing Toxic Exposures patient brochure, available in Spanish, Chinese and English, describes basic steps for individuals and families to reduce problematic exposures and choose safer alternatives to toxic products. The goal of this program is to reduce toxic exposures which has implications for reducing the burden and cost of all environmentally-linked diseases, including breast cancer. The Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition is dedicated to preventing environmental causes of breast cancer through community education, research advocacy, and changes to public policy.

    Dr. Patricia Raney, MD, a physician who is based on Cape Cod whose specialty is family medicine reflects on the value of MBCC's Let's Talk Prevention educational outreach and the intrinsic connection between breast cancer and our environment, "I am grateful that the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition is starting this dialogue between health professionals and their patients through Let's Talk Prevention: Reducing Toxics Exposure. The message that breast cancer is an environmental issue and we must take steps to reduce our exposure to chemicals of concern is crucial to improving public health. It is with this understanding that I will work to share program materials with my patients to help them take steps to reduce their exposure to common chemicals linked with breast cancer and other diseases. I am very impressed with the booklet and the pamphlet, and this is an excellent and informative presentation that I look forward to sharing with my colleagues."

    This program is in direct response to several federal reports, from the President’s Cancer Panel, the Interagency Breast Cancer and Environmental Research Coordinating Committee, and more, which recommend increased attention to the link between environmental factors and disease, especially cancer. Additionally, information from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences supports actions to reduce toxic exposures. The burden of environmental linked diseases is often underestimated and not often discussed, even in medical programs.

    Dr. Michael Misialek, Physician, Newton-Wellesley Hospital also had an opportunity to review the Let’s Talk Prevention materials: "As a physician at Newton-Wellesley Hospital, specializing in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology and a Board Member of Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition, I'm very pleased to see the Let's Talk Prevention: Reducing Toxic Exposures program develop as a resource for patient-doctor engagement. The value of such a program is not to be minimized. This program will provide much needed information about reducing toxic exposures in daily life to physicians and patients alike. I look forward to promoting doctor-patient discussions concerning the link between health and toxic chemical exposures."

    If a hospital, health center, community center, library, high school, college or private group has an interest in exhibiting the Let's Talk Prevention materials, hosting a presentation about toxic exposures reduction, and sharing the materials, please e-mail: cosimo@mbcc.org with the subject line: Let's Talk Prevention Tour. The materials can be easily exhibited and displayed.
