If you are passionate about ending breast cancer and have an interest in scientific research, we welcome you to join us. Komen’s research advocates, or Advocates In Science may be men or women, laypersons or healthcare professionals, Komen Affiliate members, or individuals involved in advocacy with other breast cancer organizations.
While many advocates are breast cancer survivors or have a loved one affected by the disease, this is not a requirement. The most important qualification is an ongoing commitment to improving the lives of those with breast cancer or those at risk for breast cancer. All applicants should demonstrate a desire to learn about breast health, breast cancer research and breast cancer issues while representing a broader perspective of those people affected by breast cancer. Applicants are strongly encouraged to be active with their local Affiliate of Susan G. Komen®. Learn more about our Advocates in Science here.
