As part of Great Neck Breast Cancer Coalition’s (GNBCC) Students & Scientists Breast Cancer/Environment Research Program, seven student interns will be presenting a PowerPoint on their research on Monday, Aug. 22, at 7 p.m. at Great Neck House, 14 Arrandale Ave.
This summer, high school students from Great Neck South High School, North Shore Hebrew Academy and Sewanhaka High School worked on research projects that addressed environmental links to breast cancer and breast cancer prevention. Their PowerPoint will present their assisted research from the laboratories of Richard Gross, PhD, Lab at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI); Laura Vandenberg, PhD, Lab at University of Massachusetts/Amherst; and Mary Beth Terry, PhD, research facility at Columbia University.
The Great Neck community is welcome to come and hear these outstanding students present their research. Refreshments will be served.
Since 2005, the internship program has been educating young, aspiring researchers/scientists about environmental links to breast cancer, how to develop safer alternatives through green chemistry and breast cancer prevention. To date, GNBCC has sponsored 52 high school internships at 10 different research facilities. For more information, visit www.greatneckbcc.org.
