The goal of this symposium is to bring together global public health actors, advocates, clinicians and researchers on breast cancer prevention to discuss how lifestyle, nutrition and environment can influence our epigenome and susceptibility to breast cancer. Discussions will also focus on reshaping health policies to reduce the burden of the disease.
Using population data and “omics” data from a diverse group across the continents, data science can harness information to develop appropriate prevention interventions worldwide while adopting region and population specific approaches.
The symposium will take us on a journey across disciplines—at the interface of nutrition, biology, epigenome, medicine, ethics and policies. It will be an outstanding opportunity to learn about primary prevention of breast cancer and to connect with leading experts in this field.
