Commemorating 20 Years of Innovative Research
Twenty years ago, the state of California became a leader in breast cancer research and policy by creating the California Breast Cancer Research Program (CBCRP). The women and men who fought to build the CBCRP envisioned a dynamic, responsive, and highly innovative program. This video describes how we honor their dreams and share their sense of urgency as we continuously seek ways to make the greatest impact against breast cancer.
